Roy says, "Past
civilizations, such as the Celts, Vikings, Romans, Saxons,
and Normans, lost all their gear." He will lead you on
a quest for lost ancient and medieval coins, jewelry, thimbles,
buckles, broaches, and who-knows-what. These coin and artifact
discovery tours, are designed for true detectorists who want
the thrill of treasure hunting in England
This tour Is compliant with the UK treasure act. Export Licenses are required to take your finds out of the country. On the last night of the tour, with Roy's help, we all fill out the export forms listing our finds. Roy takes the forms and your finds to the museum. Your finds are photographed, Looked at, Recorded, and then the export licenses may be granted. Roy then mails you your finds along with the approved export license forms, or you may elect to receive them when you come over next time. Finds that are considered treasure are handled according to the UK treasure act.

Some folks Come to England a day or two early, and on their own, visit
the British Museum and Museum of London to
appreciation and knowledge of
Roman and Medieval history, coins and artifacts. There are
opportunities to select a variety of places to visit and
tour during the course of your travels. A continuous exchange
of information and history will be presented. Remember, though,
that Roy's number one concern is to keep you on the
fields detecting as much as possible. He's been detecting
for decades and will be happy to share his metal detecting
stories and expertise with you. Remember, also that these
will be hands-on experiences. Expect to get your hands dirty!
