When I see totals like yours I blush, i set myself a meagre target of 10 a year. I have 2 so far this year (my year starts feb).

But now I have my GMP, I might have to add a '0' on! :lol:

I agree with Karv.... 1 hammered a year is a good number... I've never found one since I started detecting in the early 80's. :cry:

Thats not good enough history hunter.

If you want to find hammerd here are some tips.

1. Get an "Explorer" O.S map and look for land next to - churches, wells, springs, rivers and streams, look for south facing slopes.

2. Get some land, and make it arable (pasture sucks alot of the time)

3. Do research - place names, field names, ask locals, look at aerial photography.

4. Go to the farms closest to your chosen site for permission.

Ive got a comprehensive list of potential sites from all over the country. If you PM me with an area you are interested in, I can check my database and see what comes up, if you like, but you will need a map for refrence :)
