member Kevin Higgs talking to visitors about his finds. Kevin is one of
the club's most prolific detectorists and over the years, has found some
stunning finds. Kevin put on a
fine display of artefacts and coins covering the Bronze Age, Roman to
Medieval and Post Medieval.

Trevor Davies looking startled by my camera flash! Trevor put on an excellent
metal detecting finds, including clay pipes, stoneware bottles and a visually
stunning collection of antique pot lids, all dug
up by Trevor in his younger prospecting days when the club actually had
a bottle collecting section. Trevor has been a member
of the club for well over 30 years and has served as club Chairman many
times. He is one of our most experienced members.
Above: Pembs Prospectors Society club Chairman Mr Jack Tree seen making
last minute preparations to his "superb" display of metal detecting
Jack's display consists of finds discovered by himself, in a career spanning
over 30 years metal detecting, and as our visitors probably found out
open day, he has many interesting stories and tales to tell about his
many detecting finds. Jack is one of the most knowledgable people in our
club on metal
detecting. If you have a question concerning Detecting Rules, Conduct,
Regulations, Methods, Research, Finds Identification and much more....

Jack Tree's Collection of finds. Note the 17thC cannonball in the centre,
which Jack found in the mud of Pembroke River !
Above: Club member and
legend Mr Adrian Young seen putting final touches to his amazing display
of finds. Like Chairman Jack Tree
and Trevor Davies, Adrian is part of the Pembs Prospectors Society "Old
School" and has over 30 years of vast metal detecting experience.
As one admiring club member put it, " he could put on the display
on all on his own ! " Adrian is a Master Craftsman and Expert on
Post Medieval Jewellery, and spends much of his time helping club members
identify their finds at our monthly meetings, especially when it involves
finds of old jewellery. Adrian often uses his fantastic craftsman skills
to unbend bent hammered silver coins and artefacts for grateful club members.

Adrian's visually stunning display.
