Metal detectingThis site is primarily about metal detecting, but it is also a portal to the eventful history of the United Kingdom. I hope you find your time here interesting and informative.

Aimed at the British beginer detectorist, there are articles about the more common finds such as coins and buttons to help get you started, and also metal detecting tips and cleaning methods.

As a user and fan of the Minelab E-Trac, there is section dedicated to my favourite machine.

Good luck & happy hunting,

    Hi Rob,
    Are you looking at these maps? http://www.thecrownestate.co.uk/coastal/metal-detecting/maps/
    I’m not seeing the sandy colour.

    I would like to talk to you about your tracking software and wonder if I could please call you at a convenient time. I am working on a project that requires accurate tracking information and would very much welcome your advice on a couple of specific points. Thank you.

    Hi Chris,


    I wish I could take you up on your kind offer, but I think Milton Keynes is a bit too far away :( I will ask in some of the more populated forums for you. It’s nice to have a bit of company sometimes.

    Happy hunting and good luck!
