Now, where did I put that metal detector?

Two metal detector enthusiasts have uncovered a hoard of ancient coins that are probably worth around £10 million.

Good luck to them, I'm green with envy.

I'm just wondering where they got my toothbrush from. Maybe it was with the coins.

FE - I ask myself the same question. "Where's my detector?"

I always use a hand-held metal/electric wire detector before I drill any holes in my interior walls...

It seems to work as I have not 'hit upon' anything yet!.

If you get a really smart phone, you can download the metal detector app and have everything conveniently in the one device.

Just hope that they are treated fairly when it comes to paying them, that headline is already calling it treasure trove.

On the World Tonight they said that they spent 10 hours a year 'detecting' for 30 years. Fast forward to 26.30 for the interview, World Tonight.

It looks as the link stays at the end of the report so you have to go back to 26.30

Perhaps before you get out your metal detector, you might want a browse of this publication: Permission Impossible by David Villanueva (ISBN-13 978-0-9550325-3-0) and published by True Treasure Books.

It contains some good information about Do's and Do not's, and obtaining permission when metal detecting.

Remember, most land and property are regarded as private,or have certain conditions and laws, and that includes council owned parks and areas.
