mate to be really honest with ya id not advise anyone on buyin an AT pro or a minelab as a 1st metal detector thats a whole lot of money to shell out if you find the hobby isnt for you id recommend buyin a cheap one 1st then if you get hooked on the hobby fair play an upgrade but as i said spendin £500-£600 on your 1st detector is silly imo just my thoughts

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 .

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
