Hi from both of us in Somerset

Post by andy1973 » Fri Jun 14, 2019 7:31 am

Just a quick intro from my wife and I,

Complete newbies to detecting, lol well my wife used to go out with her Dad when she was younger, and I'm abit of a armchair archaeologist but never been detecting before.

After reading a lot on here and a post about permissions, I guess we have been extremely lucky so far, we have secured a permission of approx. 200 acres over twelve fields near a 12th century farm. The only problem is that the farmer used a lot of green waste, but the great advice on here has been to persevere with it.

We also have been very fortunate to have found a club that had availability, admittedly a little way from where we live, but they are friendly and very helpful so I have no worries travelling lol.

We have a AT PRO INTERNATIONAL and a MAKRO MULTI KRUZER which we are trying to get to grips with.

After our first club dig we are both completely hooked (we've unfortunately not been able to get out to our permission yet)

Hopefully soon we will have some items worth posting on here.

Welcome to the forum. I have a feeling you are going to love this hobby. If you like archaeology it’s always a very good sign :D

I hope to see your finds as you become the historical lost property department of your local fields. The question is though, who will find more - you or your wife? :D

LOL I had a bet that she'd find the first real artefact...... and she did, a horse brass with the leather still attached, But I had the first coins.

Hello and welcome to you both. Always nice to see a couple taking up the hobby. Can’t beat a little competition in finding and have someone to compare finds with.
Best of luck. Look forward to hearing how you get on.

A welcome from Cambridgeshire. You have obviously made a great start: permission, decent detectors, club membership, an instant 'buddy', and chosen the best forum... add enthusiasm and enjoyment and it bodes well.

I did not realize that Yeovil club had been going that long.

Another Old club is SHRADS in South Gloucestershire.

If only those long past enthusiasts could join this thread we could all surprise each other exchanging knowledge.

Happy Hunting,

Jerry.
