I have been park and beach hunting for years, but really eager to team up to take a shot at some revolutionary war sites. I currently live in Boston and would jump at the opportunity to join anyone locally. Drop me a note or email me firstname.lastname@example.org

Stay away from Castle Island - federally protected land and you will get arrested and detector confiscated. Anything on the Freedom Trail is off limits, too. I believe Lexington and Concord sites are protected as well. Can't think of any other sites...don't think you can detect on the Boston Common or the Public Garden. (I used to live in Back Bay, moved to Quincy, now live in New Hampshire). Sorry I couldn't help you. You mention you have been park and beach hunting for years, so you probably already know about these off limit areas.

If you were to travel to Springfield,the common there was the site of three army encampments during the revolution.Whether you can detect there or not i dont know.
