Hi, there! My name is Artem and I am a manager of a treasure hunters’ club «Detectorists.club». I am keen on hunting the coins of the Roman Empire and of the Middle Ages as well as searching for various artefacts of that period. In my blogs I usually post my reports on findings and treasures as well as different true stories about treasures found on the territory of the former USSR. Most of the stories are sent to me privately that is why you will first learn about these facts from my blogs. I am sure it will be of great interest for you to find out about the treasures discovered by people of other countries. Anyone who feels like it can register in the club and share the stories and facts about findings and discoveries. I am always glad to meet like minded people in the club! P.S. I am not a native English speaker, that is why I hope you will excuse some possible mistakes!
