About Me

Im David 31 and live in Charlestown. I work as a greenkeeper at St.Austell golf club where iv been for 10.5 years now.

I have been intrested and fascinated in archeology since a very young age. And once I had my first metal detector and started unearthing lost and forgot artifacts I was totally addicted.

I still get a rush everytime I get a signal and begin to dig. And the part I enjoy most is carefully cleaning and identifying what I have found.

I love finding Roman items most of all ( Thats where Rallies etc come in helpfull) , its a peiod I have alot intrest in.

I really want to find a celtic coin,arrowhead,bronze axe head.

I look forward to many hours spent wondering fields with people from the club and discovering many more items.

About Me

I'm 64 years old Have been detecting since early 1980's I still haven't fulfilled my detecting bucket list,as I I haven't found a Roman Brooch or a complete hammered silver coin (yet!!)

I am very keen on local history/archaeology and enjoy the researching of sites just as much as the detecting. My old faithful Tesoro silver sabre has finally succumbed to old age and dry rot and I am struggling to fathom out my new garrett. my best find was an Ae3 roman coin from the Trier mint which was in almost uncirculated condition and came out of the Sandy soil as good as the day it was dropped.

I have felt welcome right from  my first dig with the club and am looking forward to the future with you all

About Me

Started detecting about 25 years ago, but only recently taken it up again and been lucky enough to purchase a CTX303 but need help!.

14years in Royal Navy, 16 years local government and now 12years in NHS. Currently working at Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust.

Have a love for historical items, recognising the value is not in £s but in the history of the item discovered.

A true West Countryman.

Fantastic to now be a member of the Club and look forward to meetings all members.

About Me

Introduced to detecting in Bedfordshire many years ago. Drifted away from it due to career pressures, family commitments and more recently as an RAF Reservist, now retired.

Now have my own business with more time on my hands and looking forward to spending much time detecting.

Hi,

Joined your club last night - 14th May - certainly good to be among like minded people after detecting for so long on my own (20+ years).  I've detected over most of the country in that time by going to rallies and phoning farmers in far off places and going into b&b for a few days.   Had some great finds, many Roman silver and 2 gold but alas, not too much in Cornwall.   Hope all that will change by getting onto different land and being with guys/girls who are as passionate about the hobby as me.   I work for Cornwall Council as a finanance officer (someones got to !!) and live in the centre of st austell.

I have a lot of spare time having more or less retired, my prievious hobbies include small bore rifle shooting sea fishing and golf, metal detecting is something I have been interested in for a long time but the opportunity never came up.

I met some of the club members recently and found them very welcoming,looking forward to your next dig so I can learn more about becoming a detectorist.

I am a 48 year old flat roofer and I have lived in Newquay most of my life. I am a keen metal detectorist as I love anything to do with history. I have been on a few digs where I have met like minded people and I find this extremely helpful and informative. Which has led me to be a part of mid cornwall history hunters. I have a Garrett AT pro and I am a member of NCMD.

Minelab explorer and now a CTX3030 :) (accidently won it on Ebay (don't tell my wife) for less than the price of a new Deus (which I was thinking of getting but don't tell Jules)). Only go out on club digs at the moment (not enough hours in the week) but prefer that coz we have a right laugh and I like to see what the real pros find.

About Me

Born and bred in the potteries and moved to Cornwall 10 years ago. I started metal detecting whilst up there approx 15 years ago in Staffordshire.

I enjoy the outdoor life, if I'm not in  the countryside then I am on some beach or coastal walking. My job also means that I work outside, great in the summer but crap in winter! 8)
