August 23 - Joe Johnson will be our guest for the August 23 meeting.  Joe was one of   the original members of the Northern Virginia Relic Hunters Association.  He will   explain  how plentiful extraordinary Civil War artifacts were in the early days of hunting,   even with the very basic equipment available.  Joe will tell us how he struck pay-dirt in   his early hunts near Richmond.


September 27 -  A Professor at VCU, Dr. Bernard Means is the Director of the Virtual   Curation Laboratory.  Bernard has done amazing work with the 3-D printing of actual   relics recovered throughout the United States and Europe.  The replicas he and his   students have created are very valuable to military museums that want students and   visitors to be able to feel, as well as look at, military artifacts that have been precisely   reproduced.

 

October 25 - We’ll be heading back to the American Civil War Museum where Chief   Curator Robert Hancock will share some of the very rare artifacts from the Museum’s   vast collection.


November 22 - Jerry Simmons of Cold Harbor Metal Detectors will explain to us the new   relic hunting technology that we can find in his shop and the opportunities that still   exist for us to recover some amazing artifacts.


December - (No Meeting in December).
