T2+1 This is as much about you as a person, as it is about the recording of the Artefacts you find, with your personal & unique touch being put into the written word of the Field Diary…

Everything that goes into the mix of making each book, helps create a unique & personal Journey… 

I personally will not write a book of national importance, & although you or I might not set the world alight with our literary skills, i believe that we will be writing a book of historical significants, for historians of the future, every item we find is only one piece of a giant jigsaw puzzle…

A jigsaw so vast, that in our lifetime we will never complete the entire picture, so whether it is local permission or from further afield, at a rally, losses, discarded items, or deliberately buried items, these all start to paint the picture of how our ancestors worked, played and even fought over our search sites…

Artefact Journal

Everything has its place, & a place for everything…

The Artefact Journal is no exception, it has been created for the sole purpose of being a dedicated recording aid to the recovered items, no matter whether you are a detectorist, digging up artefacts in a field with a Metal Detector, or participating in another form of Treasure Hunting such as dump digging, magnet fishing & even gold prospecting etc…

Every item can be recorded, & given a trackable number, from the findspot to the book, into the cabinet & visa-versa…

Field Diary

Any personal diary, written in any language is a private journal of thoughts, but in this diary, do not restrict yourself to just words, use the universal language of art, be it a line drawing with a pen or pencil, detailed artwork or even stick drawing which I tend to do,  remember to keep this an open work, in so much of the fact this is a Field Diary and should reflect your feelings, & thoughts on the day’s events… Words come in many languages, any diary is a personal essay of one’s feelings, & encounters of the day, but remember you are not restricted to words, even if you just doodle, make it yours… Like any diary, it is about the author writing a personal account of the day’s events…

Artefact Journal & Field Diary

Put the two pages together & you have a conveniently grouped pair of pages, to help create an easy to use recording journal, with its own unique system, helping to keep the day’s findings all grouped together, with the diary to keep notes & help you to remember the day’s events, sights & sounds… This is no different to any other diary page, except it is conveniently placed within a dedicated book, for easy access, tying all the loose ends together…

I think J.R. Tolken summed up Metal Detecting… when he said, & i quote;

“Not all those who wander are lost”
