Old Virginia Blog : Outstanding blog covering a wide range of subjects. A must read link for any serious relic hunter. Richard G. Williams, Jr. is a Southern writer, autodidact, relic hunter, researcher, and raconteur who specializes in Virginia history and the War Between the States.

Detecting.US; The Metal Detecting Journal of Scott Clark: I have been metal detecting since I was 16, using a Bounty Hunter machine that had just enough of a discriminator to make it fun to an impatient teenager. I live in Lexington, KY, a very historic area surrounded by “off-limits” greenspace.  So much of my hunting is done in surrounding communities.

Cooperation with Archaeologists

I now have a goal of finding ways that detecting hobbyists can cooperate with professional archaeologists in historic preservation.   But this does not mean relegating the experienced detectorist to the role of “site technician.”  Those of us in the hobby a long time have often acquired superior research, site survey and recovery skills to professionals.  If you’re a professional in the central KY area, I’d be very happy to talk with you about this.

Hollow Grounds Restorations : Roland Frodigh is a stand-up guy and his talent is unmatched. Roland gave a talk at a club meeting a few months ago, he brought many relics he had worked on and the results were amazing. The overarching purpose of this blog is to share through digital media, the finding, identifying, and restoring of lost history.

Detecting 365: An Arsenal of Metal Detecting Knowledge

Shipwreck School: The idea for this venture was born out of a desire to offer a place where one could go to learn about shipwrecks, including exploration methodology, hands-on training, historical significance, current political climate surrounding shipwreck exploration, and the list goes on. Furthermore, the vision for the school has always been to be a place open and of interest to both scuba divers and non-divers alike. Finally, an overarching goal of the school is to promote and foster private exploration of shipwrecks. To date, it seems there is no other institution in the world specializing in shipwreck education.

Detecting Doodads: Detecting Doodads was created as an outlet to make available to you some of the unique accessories I have created for myself.  I have been afflicted with this metal detecting lifestyle for many years. My Engineering work keeps me flush in fresh batteries. Mixing my hobby and my profession allows me to come up with simple products that make metal detecting a little easier and more enjoyable.
Utilizing the latest in 3D printing technology and design software, allows me to very quickly go from concept to finished part. Take a look at our detector shaft camera mounts, and goPro accessories which are all printed per order in a wide variety of color choices.

 Southeastern Pennsylvania Historical Recovery Group: Check this club out. Woody Mc Kay is a great guy. What is metal detecting? Most everyone has seen those crazy people on the beaches, in the parks, and in schoolyards wearing the headphones (that every once in a while make a funny beeping sound) and waving a funny looking device back and forth just above the surface of the ground. Yes, that is metal detecting. You probably wondered if they ever find anything of value, or do they mostly find junk, such as rusty nails and those infamous soda can pull tabs. If you ever try the hobby of metal detecting you will find out that, in fact, these treasure hunters, of sorts, do find items of value.
