Meet the metal detectorists saving marriages

BBC News Business/The Technology of Business , 31 Oct 2014 - Meet the metal detectorists saving marriages

It's 09:00 on a cold, wintry Sunday morning and a strong wind is blasting across a recently ploughed farmer's field. We are somewhere down a beaten track on the Purbeck clifftops along the UK's south coast. The landscape is deserted, with the exception of one determined man with his metal detector… and me.

Flying instructor Richard Higham is a treasure-hunter in his spare time, and he is convinced this particular field is a "hotspot" for relics from the past. He points out the visual clues which suggest somebody once called this deserted, exposed spot their home.

Burial mounds, pottery shards, flint and overgrown but still distinctive stripes along the slopes of the landscape - the remainder of an ancient farming method. His metal detector - a middle-of-the-range model compete with GPS - goes on and we begin our march, hunched into the wind.
