I know most all of you use Google to research and find new places to detect. It is without a doubt the best search engine out there. I am also guessing you pretty much do what I do and that is type in the name of my town, county or state and then add keywords like schools, churches, parks, history, etc.. Anyway let me suggest a few more words you might try. I can’t promise they will work for you but they have provided me with a lot of leads to work on. If and when you give them a try, have a thesaurus or synonym finder on hand and see what substitutes you might also throw in the mix.

RESPONSE FROM WARREN, RHODE ISLAND
On May 26th I shared Chicago Ron’s photo of a “no metal detectors” sign that was in front of a park in Warren, Rhode Island. I emailed the gal in charge of parks there and received the following response:
“Burrs Hill Park is protected because it was discovered to be historical. When we had all the work done we had to have a representatives from the indian tribe and state officials available during our digging as there may have been ancient indian artifacts on the property. So it is protected.”
Town of Warren
I am not quite sure what “there may have been” means, but if it is indeed an Indian burial site I cannot argue with the decision to close the area. If anyone has any additional information regarding this situation please send it along…
