The world of has entered the metal detecting world! The Central Florida Metal Detecting Club in Orlando has an well used face book page. Check them out. They have a link on their club site.
TCAS also has a face book site! Talk to fellow members, check out what is coming up on our events page and even post pictures of all kinds! We are up and running! Like Us!
Mitch King spoke of his many trips to England. When he goes on these trips he is a hard core metal detectorist…in the fields at sunrise and still there at sunset! It cost about $1,600 per week to detect plus the cost just to get there!
He goes to Colchester England which is about 60 miles NE of London and is the "oldest recorded Roman town in Britain, Colchester claims to be the oldest town in Britain."  
Any find older than 50 years cannot be taken out of the country without first being documented, listed and submitted for review. If your find is determined to be rare enough, they will request to actually see the find. If it is determined that it cannot be taken out of the country (i.e. they WANT it), the value of the find will be determined and you will get paid for it.  
When there you hunt farm fields and will be the only ones there! His list of finds is, at least to me, tremendous and to long to list here. Besides, it was to dark in the room to take good notes!
