If you have an idea for a dig or a dive, drop us a mail.
  We have all the equipment such as metal detectors, pumps, gas detectors etc. Jay is an advanced open water wreck diver,  confined access certified, has a plant licence for mechanical diggers and a qualified Bomb Disposal Technician. We can help you with any licences or permits required.  We just don't have the time to research any more. Distance no problem, we will go to the four corners of the earth for a dig or a dive!

Jack will be attending a fair in Anet, France this week end.  It is quite a Medieval area so it will be interesting what sort of items will turn up. 
Jay is currently on what we call the "big 4"
He flew into Saigon (Ho-Chi Minh City) for a couple of days to let his diggers and pickers know he is in town, then he took a bumpy old bus into Cambodia for the same, followed by another bone shaker into Thailand where he bought a load of shorts and t-shirts for our surplus store.
He then took the same journey on the way back picking up all the goodies that his diggers and pickers had for him. He is currently in the Philippines for a week or so in our factory over seeing the final stages of last quarters order and ship them to the UK.
He will then fly back to Vietnam to leap frog home to the UK for the first week in March. 
Paul is holding the fort back home and is ready willing and able to take your orders.
We have added some more material to the most of the pages, so get them while they are available.

Why not grab your self a bargain as some of the items are reduced in price.
The further down the page you go, the more reductions we have made, in order to fund getting new stock.

If you want to see all of the new finds before they make the web site, you could
always come and visit us at our shop or at one of the many fairs and shows we attend.

A note about our finds:

The item descriptions are based on our opinion and experience. We are far from experts and will get things wrong from time to time and get taken in by fakes just as many of us may have done.  This is why we offer a 14 day no questions asked refund period in which you can return an item for any reason, so long as it is received in the same condition it was sent.  This way you get to decide if an item is what you think it is.  There are too many armchair experts out there who are all to quick to complain on the forums etc that we have got this wrong or that is fake etc. If we have got something wrong please, please let us know so that we can put it right and learn from the experience.

The battlefield relics we find are mainly from shell holes that were filled with debris and back filled after the war.
Our other sites include a First World War Dressing Station and a Second World War Field Hospital.
Personal effects are found on these sites as they were most likely in the uniforms that were cut off and burned in trash pits.
We only trade with reputable diggers and buy from junk shops and flea markets.
We condemn "Black Digging" and "Night Hawkers" who are profiting from desecrating Ancient Monuments and Grave Sites.  Always ask as many questions as you can about the find and it's location.  If you suspect it is a "Black Relic" please avoid it like the plague.  We will always give as much information on the find location as we can, however sometimes we will use "found near" in order to protect a site that is ongoing.
Always remember when field walking-if you are going to take anything make sure it is only a photograph!

Please speak to us about our layaway plan if you want to pay in instalments.

Check out our adventures page where you can see the photos from our latest adventures digging and diving for relics.
