Institute for Detectorists Survey Launch

Published: 8 months ago Author:

The Association of Detectorists are the recipients of funding from Historic England to explore the feasibility of setting up an Institute which represents and supports responsible metal detecting.

The Association has launched a survey to understand more about what detectorists and other interested people think about the idea of developing an Institute for Detectorists, including more information about its possible role and what it might offer potential members.

The survey includes questions about the role the proposed Institute may take in advocating for detectorists and detecting, and as a membership organisation offering training, recognition and other benefits.

Feedback will help the Association define the role, remit and structure of the proposed Institute, especially in relation to its strategic aims and priorities, and membership options for the differing interests of the detecting community.

To take part in the survey please visit The survey will close on the 15th March.

More information on the Association of Detectorists can be found here.
