Detect History is the site you go to when you want to buy a metal detector – for yourself, for your kid, to explore a new location, or to choose a new one instead of an old one.

This resource is created for detectorists of all levels, from newbies to seasoned treasure hunters. I take effort to explain things no one usually explains to beginner detectorists. Experienced detectorists, in their turn, can find out more about new models of famous brands, or get some insider info.

I am committed to provide objective and honest information. I will never recommend low quality products only because they are popular, or expensive, or look cool. With Detect History, you can be sure that the advice is based on personal experience – including fails, bumps, and bruises.

My Story

When I made my first steps in metal detecting in 2013, I could not even imagine that this will lead me to creation of one of the biggest websites on metal detectors, communication with brands, etc. This is my story.
May 2013
Started metal detecting with Garrett Ace 250
2014 «My first find was an old M-1903 Springfield shotgun cartridge. I was so excited!»
February 2015
Ace 250 was changed on AT Pro
2015 «I have immediately noticed the improvement. More settings made my search more comfortable and productive, the number of finds increased. It was words different!»
October 2016
Launch of the Detect History Instagram page
«I decided to create an Instagram page, just to share the pics of my finds. Little did I imagine where this path would lead me…»
November 2017
Started working on Detect History website
«Before, I already tried to make a site on free platforms, but got no positive result whatsoever. So, I decided to start from scratch.»
February 2018
Launch!
«Success at last! Firstly, we made a pilot prototype of the site, and in a few short weeks, I already welcomed the first readers.»
May 2019
Over 200 pages of reviews and guides
«Inspired, I started to write about literally everything I knew about metal detecting at that moment.»
December 2019
Detect History Awards 2019
«By the end of the year, I’ve created awards to the best metal detectors. One of the awards now resides in Nokta Makro’s office, while the other just couldn’t make it to Minelab in distant Australia…»
February 2020
First trip to the metal detectors manufacture office
«The first brand who opened their doors to me for interview was Nokta Makro and their VP Dilek Gonulay. Thank you so much! This was an affecting experience.»
June 2020
Major redesign
«Eventually, two years later I became aware that, to achieve my goal, I need to improve the website, make it more user-friendly and provide more value to the readers.»

My goal is to make Detect History the World's No.1 website with metal detectors reviews and guidelines, by the end of 2020
