Hi! I am glad to a part of this community and I am ready to learn! I can be commonly found in my “natural habitat” checking tailings and visiting mines. I mostly rockhound but I have been getting into metal detecting as of late. I have been told that Virginia is a great state for detecting for relics (specifically Civil War artifacts) and other related objects.

Welcome to the forum!

You are correct Virginia does indeed have a lot of Civil War relics buried in the ground in many areas, there were numerous battles throughout the state, Virginia also has some very good gold to be found especially in the central to northern parts of the state!

Can’t legally detect on any of the big battlefields but there are plenty of skirmishes to detect.

Yes I do know the restrictions, but there are  many parts of some of the battlefields that are on private property if you know the owners or can get permission. I have many friends in Virginia who hunt for CW relics, as well as gold.
