Welcome to Touch the Past

Welcome to Touch the Past, a blog dedicated to the use of 21st century technology —metal detectors, GPS, satellite imagery, etc. —to find and preserve remnants of the past.

I hope this blog inspires readers to explore history in books, by visits to sites, and by supporting the relic hunting hobby — either by participating in it themselves or by granting permission to history-minded detectorists who ask permission to hunt on their lands.  Enjoy the site and please share your own experiences, tips, questions, or comments.

Thanks for visiting.

I am so far behind on posting and I'm also experimenting with Wordpress ( Hopefully I'll catch up on the posts and decide which software to stick with. I appreciate your kind words!
