With its long and turbulent past, Scotland is a country filled with history. But sometimes the land can offer up fascinating details about life in bygone ages, for someone with the skill and the patience to find them.

Alan Baxter has been behind some of the most significant historical discoveries in Scotland ever to have been made by a metal detectorist. In this book, he details the fundamental rules of his craft and explains how to get involved in this fascinating activity, before taking a look at some of the amazing rarities from centuries past that he has uncovered.

Having been active in many different regions across the country, Alan recounts his metal detecting adventures over the years, along with his encounters with the historians and other experts who have helped to identify his many finds. Join him as he describes the extraordinary artefacts he has found, accompanied by full-colour illustrations, and shines a light on how you too can get started in this absorbing pursuit.
