    Newbee wants to know

    I see all of your post and the great things you'all find in plowed fields. I have a question, are these fields where at one time homes or towns were located or just plain plowed fields. The reason I ask is here in Georgia most plowed fields have always been plowed fields. Infact, it is more likely that a home or town takes over a field and not the opposite. I know it may seem like a dumb question but if all that stuffs falling out of farmers pockets, I'm heading to the fields. A plowed field has to be easier to work then going up and down hills and through the woods fighting the underbrush and briers

    Re: Newbee wants to know

    It depends on what part of the country you're in or even what country for that matter!

    Most of the stuff you see here from "plowed fields" is from guys detecting over-seas with some being here in the USA - mostly in the NE part of the country where the colonies were formed though.

    I know here in Michigan if you detect in "plowed fields" - your chances of finding anything at all is slim at best - you can walk miles and miles of fields here and not even get one signal on the detector.

    That being said - there are cases where farmers/etc. have lost money and other valuables in fields over time that have never been recovered. Research is the key to finding who & where.

    Thanks Lonewolfe, thats what I was afraid of. Darn I was hoping I could get out of the woods and in to the fields.

    Hi Newbee, UK,s the place to detect ploughed fields, with the farmers permission. You find coins and artefact's going back thousands of years Bronze age, Iron age, Roman and British detectorists favourite finds, medieval gold and silver, my best find has been a Scottish silver hammered coin from a field near Doncaster where I live, I think you guys would have a field day over here (pardon the pun) cos them American made detectors are just brilliant?

    I only hit plowed fields here in the midwest, when I know for certain an old structure once sat there. Other than that, I am like Lone and you could walk for hours/miles with no beep in the old headphones. Good luck

    99brown, I thought maybe that would be the case. I'm really not sure on how to go about finding fields that had been home sites previously.

    the finds we find in fields are normally where people have walked through the fields long ago...

    Re: Newbee wants to know

    TK, Been out about a dozen times and the only coins I have found have been clad($1.29) except for one 1935 nickle. One of my grandkids did a number on my camera and I have not replaced it yet. As soon as I replace it I have a lot of junk, a few bullets and assorted other treasures I"m dying to post. I know you folks will appreciate my stuff, my wife thinks it's funny. She tells all our friends about my $800.00 detector I use to find twenty cents worth of scrap metal.(she really knows how to hurt a guy)

    I'm heading out in a few min. to detect some CW earth works I have located. Will post my finds later today.

    Re: Newbee wants to know

    Hey Born2 MD I love fields, plowed or not. Living up here in Vermont, people have been in these fields for 200 years. Not only do people lose things in fields, they also would burn things, including old clothing and other items that were trash at one time. Sometimes those old clothes had a coin left in them. Sometimes they had very interesting buttons on them. The only way you will really know about a field is to detect it. What if that field never had a house on it, but Lee marched his troops across it. Never hurts to look. Good luck...Lance
