Research…

Is Site Research important before you go onto a site with a metal detector, i think the answer is yes, you would not go dump digging without prior knowledge of where the most likely place a dump is located, or go panning for gold in a stream on the off chance it might contain gold nuggets, but with the right equipment at your fingertips & with the wonders of modern technology, we can upload so many research sites, in an instance, but is there any one better than any other, i think there is one that stands out from the rest, this is the one i have used repeatedly over the years, it is free and very informative, which in todays society is quite refreshing…. does it work, yes, and it works really well i have found silver coins and non precious artefacts that have been dropped or discarded, via old footpaths or little greens that have rerouted or are simply no longer there, so i would say you get good results every-time…

Glass Dentures, these seem to be very well made to withstand todays farming methods…

Below is screenshot of just one good example, where on a modern map nothing shows up at all, but put it alongside an older ordinance survey map of 1885 – 1905, it shows a farm called Villiams, as circled in blue, it disappears from the maps somewhere in the 1920’S, with plenty good finds being found, every time i search this area i find something, i must admit the ground is littered with iron, as is another site i have the privilege of searching… i did find glass from Villiams farm site, they are the remains of a set of dentures, which looks like the upper part of the set & made of glass, these were found lying on the surface, near the gateway… to be continued…
