My interest in metal detecting began in 2009 after having been introduced to the hobby by father in law, Peter.
I have always had a natural interest in history having been a history teacher for the past twenty four years. My wife purchased my detector for me as a birthday present.
To date I have only discovered modern coinage and a Krauwinkel Jetton but am confident that my Garrett Ace 250 will help me uncover coins and artefacts which have a historical interest.
In particular I have a passion for artefacts of a military nature and would love to build a collection of artefacts from World War 1.
