    is there any legal issues in the UK about looking in and around castle type areas?
    As leepy said , there is . Basically you cannot go on any private land without written permission , any sites listed as archeological interest etc etc , even common land someone will have a say .
    Just a few mile from me is a well known Roman camp & the archeologogists were allowed to excavate just a small area on the perimeter & found quite a lot of stuff including gold & coinage . After they had gone metal detectors were out in force at night & basically left it looking a right mess , enter one brainy soul who developed a pheumatic gun that fired ball bearings between 6in & 12in deep in the ground . Several sites I know of were seeded & they are all left alone now as it`s just a waste of time digging for ball bearings .
    Only organically grown outdoor mj & veg .

    Pink Floyd & good bud will do it for me .

      some of the land i go on are very very near to places of archeological interest infact all the land i go on are i make sure of this lol but some of the fields have been sprayed with tiny bits of alloy mixed into the manure an spread over the entie field to stop detecting as it gives off the same signal as a small silver hammerd coin or ring just a heads up most decent detectors now can block something like a ball bearing so it dosnt register on the detector

        The minelab is the one that searches deeper in the states; most land that is 'legal' to search in the states, is often private or someone has a 'claim' on it, like a gold mine. Legal search areas have been combed through and the 'finds' are often, much deeper.

        The best finds I've seen are from those that do their 'homework' as leepy does.

        Today, I saw a White's coinmaster, almost new in a thrift shop for $30. That is why leepy is saying to start with a cheaper one, many dislike the hunt and the process; everyone likes 'finds' like leepy's. It takes work and diligence. jpt

            Oops! We forgot to cover..the other thing is simply being a 'lucky' person, too. I know someone that picked up a very large rock and took home for landscaping. It seemed to have something in it, that slightly rattled. After it was broken open a 2 oz gold nugget was inside it; Regular common pretty rock.

            That person was 'hooked' after that and studied migration of people, etc, ghost towns, on and has many decent nice 'finds.'

            Not to mention the walking and activity was great for diabetes. jpt

                  Oh wow. Thread resurrection alert. I started a thread tonight without seeing this one. Here's what I posted at the other one.
                  I ended up with a metal detector as payment for a debt a few days ago. I'm not familiar with them at all other than playing around with one years ago.
                  I got a good deal in the trade. The detector I ended up with is a Garrett AT Pro. Looking online Im seeing them for sale for around six hundred bucks and they are supposed to be a pretty good model. This one is basically new, only two months since bought, in the box with warranty card, sales slip etc. Also got both regular land and waterproof underwater headphones along with a pin pointer too.
                  Im going to take it out this week and hit some old home sites in the woods and maybe a little bit on the beach. Seems there is quite a learning curve to these things.

                      Cool hobby. If I lived in Europe I'd definitely be into metal detecting. Just so many layers of history of there.

                      I still see a few guys in the parks over here in the New World, but they're finding mostly 19th century artifacts.

                                is there a kind of metal detector that can detect metallic clays & sands ?

                                e.g. "flour gold" - where the gold particles are tiny, .001 inches for example.

                                All the detectors seem oriented to finding coins etc.

                                I'd be happy to find metallic gold on a piece of quartz etc ... or a skull with gold fillings ... but mostly I'd like to find deposits of black sand, flour gold, etc.
