I am an amateur archaeologist and an avid supporter of protecting our heritage by recording and ensuring artifacts are protected for future generations as a window to our past .

More too often these items are plundered by thieves sometimes under the cover of darkness and remain undocumented for profit denying others of how we lived.

All items I find are documented and if of historical value are reported to the coroners office, sometimes items are of real value and the land owner (who are the rightful owners) benefits from this by selling to museums, sell privately or in most cases keeps the items in the family.

I have identified some areas in Yorkshire of historical value and am seeking more land n this area to document this summer. Can you help?

Fallow and grazing would be ideal.

All holes (no bigger than 6 inches 15cm) which are put back to state found are made.

I am fully insured for 10m, I also have a fully up to date pest licence if you require assistance.

There will be no more than two people present (myself and my son)

We can also keep a look out for trespassers.
