John Lynn, better known as the ‘Norfolk Wolf’, has become one of the country’s leading authorities on metal detecting. His many years experience and no-nonsense style of field testing many different metal detectors, coupled with his ability to explain in simple terms the less understood principles involved in metal detecting, has lead to him being a sought after detecting ‘guru’ by many people, most of who had considered themselves experienced detectorists. While many other words have been written for the beginner or those contemplating getting started in the hobby, this is the first book that explains in an easy to read style, every problem or situation that a detectorist is likely to encounter and, more importantly, what causes them and how they can be overcome. Dealing with mineralisation, understanding the use of the sensitivity and discrimination controls, coil selection, what is coke and reading and understanding signals are just some of the intriguing and often misunderstood topics that John discusses

Synopsis

Throughout the ages, the uses for small lead castings included tickets to holy communion, access to brothels, and to cross bridges. Lead tallies were used to count all sorts of things like picking hops, shearing sheep, sheaves of corn and more. This text tells the story of leaden tokens and tallies from Roman to Victorian times.
