I've just been on again and I'm only upto page 20 of the photo's.

 

But can I ask a silly question Indy (as usual from me).

 

Obvioulsy a lot of the things found are made from all sorts of different metals etc so do you have to set your metal detector to look for one specific type at a time ? If so do you then go over the same area with it set to another setting blah blah.

 

Also there are some pottery pieces on there so do you all come across these by accident as you are unearthing other finds?

 

What's the cheapest metal detector I could buy that is half decent and good for a less able starter... I WANT ONE as it must be great fun and it's my birthsay in a week :D

 

You've also reminded me that we have a tin of finds in the loft somewhere from when our son was only about 6 and he went round Delamere with his Tory-R-Us metal detector. He mainly found buried coke cans but a few other little bits and bobs too which he thought were treasures (or so my mum told him) and so they packed them safely in a tin for safe keeping. I can't even remember what's in it now :lol: He also found about £7 in loose change on Llandudno beach. Like Harry would say... 'happy days' :D

Hi Dizzy, most machines pick up all metals and are fitted with discriminators so as you can tell it not to pick up iron or aluminium drink cans etc. With many years of experience it is possible to get a good idea of what is found even before digging it out of the ground, as for what machine & costs to buy simply click po any of the adverts on my site of sellers, the best is probably the CScope one !!!

pottery and flint tools etc are found on the surface normally after ploughing
