Our Club is made up of members from around the world who have all visited and hunted land in and around Colchester.
Club members help each other ID finds, chat about metal detecting and the best equipment, share settings and generally congratulate each over in our private members only forum. We have a track record stretching back over a decade of discovering hoards and finds of historical national importance. Many finds by club members are exhibited in Colchester Museum. We have developed a good working relationship with Colchester Museum and report all hoards and treasure to them so together we can preserve as much archeology as possible.
Here’s just some of the experts we regularly call upon to help ID finds:
- Comments and ID’s against Roman coins are from our expert Mark Lehman who lectures on the subject and is a director of Ancient Coins for Education Inc (ACE) based in Springfield, MA, USA.
- Comments and ID’s against Celtic coins are from John Sills, a respected Celtic coins researcher, involved with the Oxford Celtic Coin Index.
- Comments and ID’s against early Medieval coins are from Dr Martin Allen who runs the National database at The Fitzwilliam Museum.
- Comments and ID’s on military buttons are from Tim Burton
