Alan Baxter: Making History, My Life as a Scottish Metal Detectorist


Alan Baxter: My Life as a Scottish Metal Detectorist 

Alan Baxter has been behind some of the most significant historical discoveries in Scotland ever to have been made by a metal detectorist. In his brand new 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.

'My Life as a Scottish Metal Detectorist' is officially released the day after our event - come along for a sneak preview of the book and to learn more about Alan's finds.

Books will be available for purchase and signing on the day.

Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to learn about the world of metal detecting from a true expert. See you there!
