Club Weekly Meeting - Steve Taylor - Treasure beneath our feet.

Wed, Sep 3rd 2014 at 12:00 am - 12:00 am

Friend: John Cresswell

VOT: Richard Sugdon

Treasure Beneath our Feet

Steve Taylor is a landscape gardener who comes from Cheltenham and works primarily in Gloucestershire.  His hobby is metal detecting, which he became interested in some 30 years ago.  His main interest is finding ancient buried artefacts.  This involves detailed research into old maps, getting local information from farmers and developers, and even interpreting the shading in satellite photographs of fields which may reveal foundation outlines of former settlements.  After identifying the sites the painstaking hard work of scanning the ground and digging down begin.  However, most items are fortunately found near to the surface.
