Hi everyone,

I am one of "Gon"s students and my dissertation project is one of the projects he wanted to recruit volunteer metal detectorists for. It will be carried out near Oyne and will hopefully be getting started in the near future. I would like to meet up with an experienced detectorist from the Aberdeen area a chat about the project soon. I will shortly be sending an email about this to everyone who gave Gon their email address. Hope to hear from some of you soon.
