Hello Everyone ⚔️🏴
Welcome to Celtic Heritage Metal Detecting & Events South Wales . We look forward to having you join us this year for some fantastic Metal Detecting events in some "Amazing, Historical & Beautiful locations in South Wales" .
Celtic Heritage is run and supported by ex veterans and we aim to support wellbeing and mental health by providing you with fantastic, beautiful, and historical areas to detect, where you can feel welcome and safe with all the help you need.
2022 was a fantastic year for the group. We began searching this fantastic area in the heart of the National Parks of Wales in the beginning of the year and have discovered some amazing artefacts, 14 of which have been recorded with the National Museum of Wales. Ranging from Bronze Age, Roman, Medieval, Victorian and Georgian. This year we will be continuing our search through this historical and beautiful land, with new farms and new fields across clean undetected land.
