    I've thought about that place ever since I got into detecting (mid 70's). I just always assumed (yeah, I know) it was hit hard and regularly by locals.

    I was at Woodstock 94 so anything you find is probably something I lost. :P

    The Historical value of most of the finds would make it worthwhile. That said, many of the care-free people & Hippies of the day have turned into the Rude, paranoid, greedy Yuppies & Narks of today's society.

    You could always contact Alan Gerry and see if he would give you permission to hunt the site of the concert. It is now the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts but there is most of the original site still open and could be hunted. With all the rain and mud I would suspect a lot of jewelry was lost in that short period of time.

    This is the site now. It looks like it has all been re-landscaped, reworked, and rebuilt.

    If you detected a guitar string from Jimi Hendrix that would be huge bucks. Let me get Scott Wolter of America Unearthed on the case.

    Where there were people, there will be targets and there were a lot of people. Large well made belt buckles were very popular in those times and the frequency pants were up and down I'd say a few were lost! Lol

    Hunt Woodstock grounds? I think you'd make a fortune in brass.

    I found this at an old park no longer in use and is definitely from the same time period.

    Somone on the T-Net forum here has to be local to Woodstock NY. I bet they are hitting it up, I would if I was local to Woodstock. I am curious to hear about people that have detected there.

    Yes, I detected the Woodstock field in the 1980's. I've always been interested in the Festival, so finding most anything was fun....at first. Bear in mind that the field is 30 plus acres so I was just scratching the surface. No silver was found, but plenty of clad coins with none dating past 1969 obviously. There must have been a million jug wine bottle screw caps in that field of which I found about 50-100. It makes sense because it's Woodstock, right? I'm sure there's gold jewelry out there, but it's trashy obviously and I turned the discrimination up and thus forfeited gold. A rusted shut folding pocket knife; a leather wrapped Ronson lighter and a broken umbrella handle were found. The most interesting find was a flowery engraved black pipe stamped "India" whose intended purpose was not likely to be tobacco. Also, one of those aluminum gas station promotional tokens from that era which had on one side The Star-Spangled banner and a US flag. Ironic when you think that Jimi Hendrix closed Woodstock playing that song. All in all I enjoyed hunting it, but it was just an open country field then. Now the grounds are all manicured and there's a big concert hall and museum at the top of the hill, so it's doubtful anybody can hunt it anymore.

    I do recall an article in W&E Treasures back then. Was that written by you, digging?

Seems to me you'd be better off going to a typical county park or beach where....... hundreds of persons have routinely gone, every weekend, for 50 or 100 yrs. Doing the math, I think in a single year the average park or school or beach or whatever ends up getting the same amount of foot-traffic-persons.

    but ... whatever.
    If you think about it, hardly any of us "drug addicted hippy freaks" had any money back then. I'd bet if you polled 100 attendees you would have found out of that 100 only 2 or 3 had more than a dime. Just sayin............
