Touching the hand of history™
The detecting takes place on a farmer's private fields that are carefully selected by our English host David Barwell. You depart directly for the fields at 8.00 am and leave the fields for return to the hotel at 5 pm.
You can expect to find coins and relics dating back over 2000 years. These natural finds are detected on farmlands in Norfolk that had originally been the locations of, or near, ancient villages, market places, villas, forts, roads or other populated areas.
Each group hunts on its own carefully researched and selected private fields,
so that everyone has an equal chance of success. We hunt on different fields in different locations each day .
‘Only through us these fields can tell their real history....let’s hear their whisper!’
