scott-detectingI 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.


My hobby is spent detecting on private property, often in association with Archaeological projects.  I enjoy the challenge of being on an Archaeology team and introducing rigorous methodology into projects.  Even when I’m alone, I try to capture provenance for objects I find, and to add them to a data set that considers context in a manner that both the data and collection are useful to future Archaeology work.
