For many detectorists the ubiquitous spindle whorl isn’t a glamorous find; nevertheless, it still has a story to tell …

Pilgrims’ Progress

In the Middle Ages the Church encouraged people to make pilgrimages to special holy places called shrines. It was believed that if you prayed at these shrines you might be forgiven for your sins and thus have more chance of going to heaven … read more on my new blog post:

So ... you want to be an archaeologist! - Part 1

A light-hearted look at the world of archaeology. I ask all ‘amateur archaeologists’ not to take it too seriously (not that you would). If you are a professional arkie please don’t take offence and fire off letters of complaint to all and sundry. By all means leave a comment if you wish … I’d be interested in what you think. Your views may even spur me on to further inane scribblings. Go for it!

The ‘Newfie’ Coin.

Was the gold coin discovered in Newfoundland previously handled by one of the Yorkshire coiners?
Perhaps not, but detectorists (as well as archaeologists) can also be imaginative with the evocative and improbable story!

I was an electrician at Thornley colliery, Derek.
Alas, all pits gone now.
I lived in Ludworth, east of Durham, and I know Bearpark.

The detectorists' bespoke iPhone may be a useful concept for you ... the UK Grid Finder Reference tool less so!

MASONIC DETECTING FINDS – PART 1
Nine years ago the public imagination about Christianity’s secret past was fired, stoked up and resurrected with the publication of Dan Brown’s best-selling novel, The Da Vinci Code.

Is there any truth in these stories and what interest might they have for the metal detectorist?
