....Blast From The Past....

Pembrokeshire Prospectors Society participate in a Local Studies Fair

In March 1994, the Pembrokeshire Prospectors Society were invited to take part in a local studies fair, which
was held in the County Library in Haverfordwest. Organised by a group of librarians, the aim of the fair was to
highlight the growing interest in local research and to bring together under one roof, a number of organisations
who are contributing to the study and preservation of local historical, civic, archaeological and cultural aspects
of the area. Contact was made with most of the major detecting manufacturers and promotional material was
received from White's, Joan Allen and C-Scope. The prospectors were gratefull for their co-operation. On the
Saturday of the fair, some 25 organisations were present and the Prospectors were allocated display tables in
the foyer, which was in the most prominent position. Club members set up their various displays which included
artefacts from every period of history from the Bronze Age to Modern. We eagerly awaited the large crowds
which were expected and after the Mayor of Haverfordwest had opened the fair, we were not disappointed.
Club members Jack Tree (Chairman), Roy Lewis (Secretary), Arthur Duncan (Founder Member), Richard
Blacklaw-Jones and Adrian Young spent the day explaining our aims, answering the many questions raised
and generally projecting metal detecting as a well worth hobby for those with an interest in the past. We were
complimented on our efforts and some landowners were so impressed with the results of our labours that we
received offers of several sites which we intend to follow up as a club. Many contacts were made and quite a
few 'anti-detectorists' had to admit, after visiting our stand, that we had caused them to reconsider their views.
