Metallic Finds Rates on excavations

Most contractors require that every person on site has a CSCS card, which is probably why most Archaeology companies won't use MD ing volunteers.
Thanks Mike. As luck would have it, I'm meeting a farmer tomo to discuss a possible permission. It was arranged through a mutual friend. Fingers crossed.

Re CSCS card. Oh I see. I didn't know that. Mind you, I do happen to have my Construction Skills Certification Scheme card because I need it for work. I know 4 fellow detectorists through work (we all do the same/similar job) so, funnily enough, I'm yet to meet a detectorist who doesn't have a CSCS card!

as the original question was so deridably ill-conceived, i thought i would frame my own:

archaeologists: how many significant stratified metallic finds do you find on rural (field) sites on average per year?
metal detectorists: how many finds do you report per year?
thanks in advanceSmile

9 PAS finds last year but then I maybe spend 2 full days detecting worth of time a month which isn't that much. Furthermore the permissions I have generally have 1800ish and above stuff on. 5 of my PAS finds came from going out with a friend on their permission for like 4 days so a much higher return rate.

I always call significant: goes in a bad, rather than goes in a tray Wink

Only if they have the relevant experience. What is significant in my part of the country would be insignificant in other parts.

Look in the regional research framework documents...........that is a starter, then use professional and academic experience for all those interesting side-research opportunities.

Beyond the scope of the general general public I fear...........though not of the not so general general public.
