There are many metal detecting web sites on the net. Using google and the site's link lists interested readers can easily find hundred private metal detecting websites and a dozen forums. For the newcomer to the hobby of metal detecting most of them are great.The longer someone watches the metal detecting internet scene the more these sites lose their attraction. However, some do remain interesting.
To be listed here the site has to provide a lot more than find pictures and two word descriptions. The historical background, the thrill of finding and, ideally, advanced metal detecting techniques are required ingredients. The content should have enough substance that readers can return after some years and read the stories again with interest. The skill of story telling is in high regard here.
