Item Found: Relic

Location: Connecticut

Metal Detector Used: Specialty Detector (800-0332-7)


November 1st, 2012

Hello from Connecticut,

I’m here with another story about a very good machine I've recently acquired to help with an archaeology dig that goes back to 1637 here in Ct. The TDI SL, a pulse induction detector that at first I found difficult to use coming from a VLF with all the bells and whistles but thankfully a generous dealer (Andrew at New England Detectors) loaned me his for a few months to try out.

I felt this machine would excel at the archaeology site where the conditions have been difficult with emi interference and mineralization. I and fellow club members have donated hundreds of hours searching for relics for the Mashantucket Pequot museum these last few years and the friendships, trust and camaraderie with the archaeologists has been a great experience.

Saving a piece early American history and holding it in your hands is an incredible rush and combining that with an opportunity to build better relations with the archaeology world and detectorists is a win win for all. Here are just a few items I've recovered from the battle site for the museum with my TDI SL.

Dan from CT.
