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+)

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...

Finding Horse Decorations! (Identifying Finds, Photos +)

“Buttons from Gulliver’s pants” – this is the name that unexperienced detectorists sometimes call these finds, but of course they are wrong. Before you on this picture you can see a brass decoration buckle from a horse harness, or as we diggers like to call them, “horse buckles”. Such decorations were an invariable attribute from every farmer in the distant and not very distant past, and these days it is a...

Finding Roman Silver With The Fisher F44! (Find, Photos+)

There is a field near my city, on which many ceramic parts from the Chernyakhov culture (2 -5 c. AD) can be found for many centuries. This ancient settlement wass from the times of the Roman Empire, and it was huge (several square kilometers), so it’s not at all surprising that there are different kinds of stories about this place among diggers, I even know some of them. Story number 1....

An Ordinary Day Of WW2 Detecting (Diggers Story, Photos+)

Have you ever dreamed about digging WW2, but have never had the opportunity to do so? Well I have, and my dream became reality. I live in a place where there never were any battles or much of action, so I do not have the opportunity to dig much WW2 relics where I live, but I have always been wanting to do so. And one day, one of my friends...

How To Properly Clean And Protect Coins And Other Finds (Instructions, Result, Photos+)

Most of the coins, relics, and other things we find with our detectors are often in a very poor state of preservation. Sometimes it even is impossible to for example identify coins and the year of issue. The degree of preservation of the find often depends on the conditions in which it was found. For example, coins and buttons found in the sand, as rule, are well-preserved, and items found...
