In light of the quite funny programme on the BBC, Detectorists, I was wondering if anyone else likes digging old stuff up. Way back in the bad old days of my life, I've calmed down a lot now, I studied Ancient History/ Archaeology. My goal in life was to become an Archaeologist. The trouble was I preferred messing around with the ladies of the dig rather than lying in muddy ditches all day and soon gave it up. The history part stayed with me though. After watching the above programme I realised that I have never been metal detectoring. Has anyone on here actually done this? Is it good fun? Nothing like the programme? I'm thinking I might take it up but don't have the foggiest about it.
