Since there seems to be some interest, and to save clogging up the images thread,I'll kick this off! I have been a long time keen, but not avid,detectorist for quite some time Never been gold detecting, not interested, my thing is history! Love finding an old site and combing over it for historical artifacts Heres just one site I found this paddock and thought it may have had some sort of building on it once, although there were no fruit trees or pine trees, which are the dead give away that a dwelling had stood there once So over a period of time I walked the entire site,no sign og household goods, I came to the conclusion that it was just a remote paddock, but had obviously been tilled and crops planted The satisfaction of digging up an object is huge!!!! And my weapon of choice at the moment, a $100 Aldi unit, perfect for what I do, I have friends with multi thousand dollar units, but they are chasing(and finding) gold Lets hear your stories!!
