My son (17) and I are keen to get into this hobby and would appreciate all tips and advice as we have no experience at all, we are based in the eastern end of Berkshire.
We are approaching this with the hope of finding historical artefacts particularly of a military nature. Where do we start?

I would start by contacting Maidenhead detecting club, and see if they can get you out for a days detecting.
Next I would have a look through the rally section on this forum, as we are holding a beginners day, that would be worth you both attending.
Lastly, don't rush into buying detectors and associated paraphernalia before you find some land, join a club, or get to try some detectors to find what you like.
And ask loads of questions, help is free.
Walk that line, torn apart
spend your whole life trying.
