Hi,

Just wanted to introduce myself! I'm Lloyd from Peterborough, having been interested in archaeology since I was young, I finally took the plunge and bought a metal detector last month - garrett ace 150.

Thoroughly enjoying it so far, my house was built back in the 20's and I have found several interesting items along with about a ton of scrap.

Looking forward to doing lots more and I'm sure I'll be picking your brains where possible!

Thanks for taking the time to read this!

And you have no idea how frustrating it can be but it all balances out.

Good thing about detecting around your house, everything will grow better without all that rubbish under the roots ::g

Look forward to seeing some of your finds, best of luck.

Hello Lloyd, Welcome aboard matey ::g If you haven't already seen it, my advice would be to make a bee line for the Forum Guide at the top of this page as it's particularly helpful to new members and contains a great deal of information a newcomer to the hobby needs to be aware of, including our obligations as responsible hobbyists.

Good Luck and enjoy your time with us on the MDF ::g Regards ss47
