Great place to meet other detectorist
Our goal is to locate and preserve relics of the past by means of research and metal detecting.
Always get permission for private property. Your local county tax GIS system is normaly online and will show the land owner.
Signs of the past: Other than old maps, research often requires in the field confirmation of sites. Below are just a few signs to look for.
Old chimneys stand out as a sign that a house once stood here.
The obvious old homestead. It's amazing how many locations you can find just driving around. I always carry a pad and pen to take note of new locations.
Steps and driveways to nowhere can often lead to some great finds.
Old road beds and bridges offer a genuine glimpse in to the past.
