Virgin territory : advice urgently req'd !

Post by ivortripod » Fri Aug 17, 2018 9:47 pm

I have a new permission on unploughed fields, probably some orchards located here many many years back. Area has never been searched but on adjacent grounds detectorists have had several Roman finds. Local historians say Roman settlement : ' is waiting to be discovered ' in the vicinity.
GB is usually around 77-81.
So would anybody like to kindly suggest what should be my best settings on ATPro International ?
Many thanks in advance ::g

Maybe what you normally use unless there is heavy iron contamination? Good luck and take your time. ::g

I used the AT pro for 2 years a good detector have look at the Garrett web site there are some good videos by Steve from Garrett on this. Good luck. Work the field a bit at a time (like mowing a lawn)
As said take your time.

Cheers Rob, thanks for the advice. I have watched Steve many times and read his excellent book " European Metal Detecting Guide ", must re-read it now whilst awaiting the rain !
