I started mudlarking on the Thames with a metal detector which was very hard going given the amount of ship-building iron and nails as well as general rubbish that has been thrown into the river over hundreds of years.
Then I saw that you could go metal detecting in fields and I was hooked. The Rutus Alter 71 is my second ever machine and I love it to bits. I started with using the set programmes and my finds rate compared to my earlier machine went through the roof.
As I explored the settings more and more, I realised that it has a super sophisticated engine behind it and can adapt to almost any ground. I also love the concentric coil which I believe gives it the edge over other machines. I’ve also customised my Rutus Alter with a fibre shaft.
I have found hammies, silver and gold rings, roman coins and roman brooches.
I'll be at Rodney Cook Memorial.
