The Depth Detector Golden Mask Deep Hunter PRO 3 – Our Review! (Digging War Relics+)

I have never before dug with a deep metal detector, and I have not seen any friends/fellow detectorists doing it either. Therefore, I had little knowledge on this subject, and even then – all purely theoretical. The choice was short-lived, in principle, because I wanted to take a new model that would be also interesting to review and to look at the latest achievements of engineering is also interesting. So...

Detecting In Germany Part 1: The 1866 Austro-Prussian War! (Diggers Story, Finds, Photos+)

I recently went to Germany for the purpose of visiting my friend Marco and decided to bring my detector with me, just in case we had some spare time for detecting. And luckily it turned out that we had, and that brought us some really cool finds and an unforgettable experience! So, let’s get to the story itself: I decided to bring with me my XP Deus detector, as I...

Ear Cleaning Pendant, A Wonderful Relic! (Identifying Finds, Photos, Be Careful!+)

First, a non-trivial question: how do you clean your ears? Cotton swabs, most likely, and you probably never in your life realized that your ears can be cleaned with something else. But there is one nuance! It turns out in the old days our ancestors used a special object, which is called “ear cleaning pendant”. It’s hard to say when this subject first appeared, probably when one of the Hominidae...

Illegal Diggers Plundering Roman Towns In England (Illegal Detecting, News+)

Greetings fellow detectorists! Generally, when speaking about detecting, there are two kinds of people: The law-abiding “white diggers” and the “black diggers”, who don’t care about most of the rules and do their detecting at night. There is no clear “border” between the legal and illegal diggers because there are some people (especially news sites) who present almost all detectorists as “black diggers” and scare most people into thinking that...

Breaking The Record For My Oldest Coin Ever Two Times In One Day! (Digger’s Story, Photos+)

Detecting with a metal detector is an interesting hobby, but also very different from country to country, it turns out. In the place where I live, there isn’t too much interesting history and the people “back in the days” were very poor. Because of this, people obviously didn’t have too many coins to lose (and for me to find), and we detectorists even have a joke among us, that coins were...

British Detectorist Finds Ancient Roman Treasure! (Video, Photos+)

A British man was out with his metal detector when he found something no-one else found before him in England. In Gloucestershire, England, Pete Cresswell and his brother-in-law Andrew Boughton found a small treasure stock of bronze statues from the last years of the Roman occupation of the country. This treasure also contained parts of metal boxes, handles that have been placed on boxes, parts of metal statues, parts of...

Medallion Form The Kievan Rus! (Diggers Story, Photos+)

Every detectorist has a story where he has detected on land which he thought was empty, but still found a good find. It is always pleasant – a find among the earlier finds. But I’m not interested in the very fact of the pleasant find, but rather the answer to the question: how did it get there? How could you miss a valuable object? The answers to this question can...
