Since the appearance of the first commercially available metal detectors in the 1960s, the hobby of metal detecting has developed rapidly and, as the technology has improved, more and more people have become metal detectorists. This is not surprising since metal detecting is an enjoyable and exciting leisure-time pursuit that is accessible to almost everybody, regardless of age or fitness. Moreover, metal detecting need not be an expensive hobby and there is a wide range of metal detectors to suit almost every budget.

Author's Biography

John Clark trained as a mechanical engineer and gained a high reputation for his success in restoring and racing historic sports cars. A metal detectorist with tremendous experience, John is respected for his original thinking in recognizing and deciphering the audible signals produced by the metal detector as a form of 'language'. He is also one of the few people to have studied how the tourist culture in some European countries affects the finds available to detectorists on beaches and in shallow water locations.
