There is not a lot about it on the Internet. A Treasure hunting success story ("Whist on an organized dig with the Southwest Detectorist's Metal detecting U.K. I found this ...") for some reason has been deleted from the Minelab detector producer's page. It is interesting to speculate why. We learn on a forum that 'Most digs [...] cost £20 a pop to attend. Here's a not very attractive video about one of their events at King's Worthy near Winchester, how many of those finds can you spot in the PAS database?
