    Not bad, not bad at all The buckle is colonial period. Probably a shoe buckle. How big is it?

    Great hunt...not too often does one get a complete buckle
    My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.

    Great finds.
    Det vi vet er så uendelig lite mot det som har hendt. Arkeologen er som den som går langs en strand og finner småtterier, skyllet i land fra et forsvunnet skib. Men selve skibet som gikk i dypet med menneskene får han aldri se.
