Metal Detecting in Devon
With Local Farmers & Landowners
Welcome to the world of lost treasure in Devon and the
My name is Paul Williams and I'm an avid metal detectorist based in Sidmouth,
Devon. As a company Director I can't wait to swap my shirt and
tie for my jeans and boots and leave my day job behind in pursuit of Devon's past!
The name "Devon" derives from the kingdom of Dumnonia, which was
home to the tribe of Celtic people who inhabited this area of the southwestern peninsula of Britain at the
time of the Roman invasion in A.D. 43.
With a main base in Exeter and several forts,
the Romans held the area under military occupation for around 350
Devon has also featured in most of the civil conflicts in England since the
Norman Conquest, including the Wars of the Roses, Perkin Warbeck's rising in 1497, the Prayer Book Rebellion of
1549, and the English Civil War.
There have been many finds in Devon from coins to
jewellery, buttons and buckles to weapons, but the vast majority of
these artefacts from long ago remain in the ground. . . waiting to be discovered today.
Could there be valuable historic items waiting for
discovery in your land? Now you can find out for free. On your
behalf, I will be pleased to investigate and carry out a search at no cost to
yourself. I welcome new land to search and I'm happy to share
any items of value on a 50/50 basis.
It's exciting to imagine that historic items and possibly even hoards which may have been lost or hidden over
the past two thousand years may just be a few inches under our noses and can now be detected better than ever
before thanks to developments in metal detector technology.
Your discretion is assured in all circumstances and I will be happy to discuss this with you further should you
have any questions or concerns regarding this issue.
If you are
interested in discovering what history might be under your land, your discretion is assured in all circumstances
so please do contact me in complete confidence.
