That be Craig Denney from the west country,they speak funny and have a weird sense of Humour,but he is a very good detectorist,but he has been experiment in a big way with 'Geophyising' and combining this also with detecting,the Geophyising machine is a cheap setup compared with what is on the market,but it does add another dimension too his hobby.

A few weeks back he was a on a old pasture site and found what is probably a DMV 'desert medieval village' and that would not have normally been found without him doing his 'Geophyising' so although is equipment is very basic but his interpretation of the basic graphs do make sense and you can see features that other wise you would not see,so this does give him some advantage of just using a metal detector.

This is his Geophyising channel

Must admit i am finding this additional subject interesting as its a bolt on piece of equipment that can aid 'relic/artifact/hoard' hunting especially here in the UK.

All you buggers speak funny over there. Depending on what part of the UK, different levels of funniness.:biggrin: Unlike us out in the colonies, apart from the Aussies, we speak the Queen's english :laugh: I like how when quoting measurements from the tape measure it is metric & when he sticks his spike into the ground it is imperial. :rolleyes:

All jesting aside my lovers, thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing.

Best of luck out there

PS  Sorry just bored. It is snowing outside :ohmy: & I can't/dont want to go to work & can't go for a detect.:rolleyes:

      Since Steve is looking for more pictures...
      I did get out Saturday afternoon.  Temps said 30 deg, so figured it was a good day to see how my Vista Gold Gain likes colder weather.  I have been addicted to using it since trading for it in August, in any site that is not too infested with modern aluminum.  The part of the field I was hunting is usually very wet, and hence, freezes very solid...its kind of like frozen mud...once you disturb it...gets messy.  The frozen solid layer 2 weeks ago was only about 2 inches...Saturday it was about 5 inches.  A brief plug for anyone looking for a new shovel.  I have had my Lesche 38 ground shark d-handle for more than 3 years now.  It is indestructible.   It was taking 3 or 4 jumps per cut to get through the ice layer...then I basically pried using my weight to get the plug up.  The targets were mostly below the frozen stuff, so actually pinpointing and retrieving targets once the plug was out...pretty easy.
      This spot produces its share of buttons...didnt disappoint this time, either.  VGG just nails the small stuff as easily as the larger items.  
      The oval is a cufflink, it has a running fox on it...ozzie and I have both gotten multiple of these at this spot now, and I have multiples of the other ladies buttons from other hunts there as well.  The object just to the left of the spoon....It is a cast item, as it has a seam.  It is a decorative item, as it has two flowers on it.  I will post other pictures if I can manage to get it cleaned up any better. 
      Temps have been so low the last 4 days...no shot at detecting now unless it warms up for a week or two...i shall hope.

      Here are my best finds from my last two trips with my new Equinox 800.  The site is an old plantation that has been under continual cultivation since the 1830's.   All detecting took place in plowed fields with over 180 years of accumulated nails, iron farm implements, and assorted trash.  Running the 800 with no discrimination sounds like machine gun fire due to the massive amounts of nails and other iron (I wasn't searching this way though!).  I was running the 800 mostly in Field 1 and occasionally in Field 2.  Field 1 was a touch quieter. 
      I found 6 Tax Tokens, a V nickel, a buff, and one Jefferson nickel; 5 pennies including one IH;  one merc and one 1876 Carson City seated liberty dime.  I was very excited about the CC dime since this is a Mississippi site and I have never found one before.  Unfortunately both dimes have plow marks.  This is not uncommon considering the amount of cultivation.
      Additional finds included a nice flat button, bridle boss, several brass rivets, heel plate, and other whatzits.  The smaller rivet was fairly deep.
      Considering the amount of trash I was very impressed with the 800.
