A Productive Day in the Fields

Not long having the E-TRAC, I found my local Detecting club via

A few weeks ago I went out with another member of the Club who has a Safari. We detected fields near Somersham in Cambridgeshire and what a very productive day we had.

Downloading the UK Roman Field pattern to my E-TRAC, I spent most of the afternoon digging up Roman Coins, circa. 278 AD, together with a rare steelyard weight and other very old finds.

This was my first Roman find and I can honestly say that the E-TRAC detected these objects without any problems at all and interestingly, at extreme depth, so the FBS technology works very well.

Well done Minelab!
