MISSION STATEMENT

The UK Detector Finds Database (UKDFD) is a hobby-based initiative, which has the following aims:

To promote a recording ethos within the hobby and encourage those detectorists who would not otherwise record their finds to do so by making use of the UKDFD self-recording facility

To bring about an increase in the number of detectorists recording their finds, and the overall number of items that are recorded

To make available a facility and encourage the recording of post c.1650 finds, many of which are not eligible for inclusion on the Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS) database

To provide an easy-to-use and supportive self-recording environment for detectorists, which employs the latest technology and methods of communication

To make the UKDFD database accessible as an internet resource for the identification and research of items recorded, and to preserve that information for the benefit of future generations
