Scott Newman is a descendant of the many-generational King family, one of the founding families of Orient. His metal detecting hobby feeds his passion for history, adventure, and local archaeology. He uses a shovel and a simple metal detector as a remote sensing device, with minimum disturbance to the ground, to find hundreds of artifacts buried in the Orient earth. His discoveries include uniform buttons, buckles, coins, tools, silverware, ammunition, jewelry, and family heirlooms. In this talk Scott will tell how his artifacts show who lived here, how they lived, what they lived with, and how rare foreign and exotic objects ended up here. Scott will have relics with him to illustrate his talk.
