Danish Museums Create Database for Amateur Archaeologists

Danish Museums are creating an online database where amateur collectors can register their finds. “Amateur archaeologist Freddy Arntsen from North Zealand, Denmark, puts the detector aside as he grabs a handful of soil that turns out to contain a silver coin from 1623 AD, embossed with King Christian IV’s monogram. The little coin is far from the only find made by amateur archaeologists like Freddy in recent years. Now, Danish museums have come together to create a new database, DIME (Digital Metal Finds), where amateur archaeologists can register their finds.”
