Hi, there! My name is Mark and I'm the owner of Detectorists Club. I am keen on hunting the coins of the Roman Empire and of the Middle Ages as well as searching for various artifacts of that period. In my blogs, I usually post my reports on findings and treasures as well as different stories about treasures found in different territories. I'm always glad to meet like-minded people who want to share their treasure hunting and metal detecting stories, so get involved!
