Guests are welcome to our monthly meetings. Trying to decide what equipment you might need? Wondering what people find? Are you new to detecting? Want to learn more about techniques for hunting? We have an extensive library of books on topics we might need to identify items we find. Our meetings are open to interested new hunters. We have monthly raffles and refreshments for all who come.
Our May speaker was speaker Daniel M. Sivilich, a battlefield archaeologist with more than thirty years’ experience in the field. He has authored numerous scholarly and popular articles on Revolutionary War–era historical archaeology.
Dan's slide presentation enlightened us all about a few myths about musket balls, and gave us a very good illustrated and researched data to help us understand what many of us find in the ground.
Our library now has a copy of his book "Musket Ball and Small Shot Identification" which is available for members to use in the future to identify our finds.
