“Dig Fellas” to Air September 4th…

With All Due Respect Harry…?

Yesterday I shared a 2010 idea of one Nigel Swift (a.k.a. Heritage Harry). It was called the Ethical Metal Detecting Association.  I brought it up only because Mr. Swift decided to ressurect from it’s deathbed and give it new life (see here).  Not sure why?

Your Chance to Win a Detector & Help A Friend in Need…

As you know I have been sharing the story of Ken MacIntyre, the son of Lisa MacIntyre, archaeologist, and want to thank all of you who have donated.  I am very proud to be part of this pastime.

I also mentioned that we were not done helping, and over the past few days the gang at American Magazine’s  Relic Roundup and I have been contacting the manufacturers and magazines, asking for their help, and they, like you, have responded graciously. So mark it down folks….on the October 21st Relic Roundup Show YOU could be the owner of a: Continue reading
