EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PEAK! NEW FOR 2019: Nexus Pathfinder Twin Box breaks depth penetration records
The Nexus Pathfinder is a brand new additon to our metal detector range. The two box metal detector redefines the terms depth and discrimination completely. The mechanical construction of the new Nexus Pathfinder is made out of over 300 individual components forming a complex frame designed to achieve extreme mechanical stability and very low weight at the same time. The weight of the frame and coils of Nexus Pathfinder is only 3 kg. The coils are 75 cm (30') in diameter and the total working length is 185 cm. More information regarding the development of this two box metal detector as well as detailed video tests will be published as soon as it becomes available.
An outing to the beach is a usual event for 7-year-old Eilith Gunn and her father who resides closeby the seacoast in Shetland. While they were walking up and down the beach and looking for things, there between the pebbles, Eilith found a tiny object, dark grey in color about the size of a £1 coin, which resembles a ring and was able to fit on her index finger. Eilith's grandfather, who has some knowledge about history thought that it may be a spindle whorl, which is a disc fitted to a spindle for the purpose of increasing and maintaining the speed of a spin. The family placed the find on a shelf in their living room. 18 Months later Mr. Gunn took the item to Shetland Museum and Archives. He said: “At the museum they took it away. Shortly, the curator came down and said ‘Who found this? This is quite exciting’. Experts believes it may likely be a bead from an ancient necklace, dating back to the Iron or Stone Age and could be as old as 7000 years. Mr.Gunn added. “It’s amazing to think that someone was wearing that a very long time ago. It makes you imagine what life was like then.” The museum curator explained that during ancient times in Shetland

A unique find of 2000 gold spirals has been discovered in a field near Boeslunde, Denmark. Similar spirals have been found in Germany and Poland before, but their exact purpose is still unknown. These delicate artifacts, are made of thin, high-grade gold thread of about 0.1 millimeter with each item consisting of a length of up to 3 cm (1.18 inches) with a combined weight of about 300 grams (0.661 Pounds). Finding gold in the area is not an unusual occurance, as several

other gold artifacts were discovered there from the 1800's to recent dates. Initially only a small group of spirals were found. They were sent to be evaluated and confirmed to be gold. Following that, further search in the area unveiled more of this treasure.
There was also pieces of wood and animal skin, as well as birch bark tar, which was used as an adhesive in those days. It appears these items were apart of some kind of box, which lead experts to believe the gold spirals may have been inside a box prior to being buried. The discovery of several other gold artifacts around the area makes it likely that it could have been a ritual ground and the buried items an offering to some higher power. There is also a possiblity that the priest who performed the ritual ceremony may have been wearing some of these golden coils, as it was a common practice to embellish the hats, robes and capes of priests with some form of gold, which represented divine power. Metal detectorists have been instrumental in making significant discoveries of history around the area and will continue to do so in the future.
