  2. First hunt after quarantine... Weird Fibula and some coins

    Had to stay 10 days at home after being infected with Covid. Nothing too serious. Luckily. We had nice sunny weather and the soil was dry on top and wet underneath. Did most of the time chatting with walkers.... Got a nice 50Pfennig, some roman scrappies, bronze nail and a weird early Fibula. We...
  3. German Tank found. Ok, part of. Sturmgeschutz IV

    Sunday afternoon hunt on a muddy field. We had no success with the expected roman finds for about 2hrs. I started strolling further from the high ground we started. The field has a gently slope to a sunken road or hollow way where it goes to the small village. I got an iffy signal and the...
  4. Lots of trash, a Rifle and a shot Jesus Statue...

    One more sunday hunt near a roman villa site. The field has a slope down to a small creek with a wooded bank. We detected our rows with little success, loads of trash with very little roman stuff. I was thinking the roman path was going down to the creek lead us to the wooded bank, hoping to...
  5. Crazy after work hunt 2050 year old roman silver and a roman Lady

    I managed two hrs today after i stopped work early. It's the field we get the most roman silvers out. I had a look in my records and it was the 21 hunt there... I started at the corner and worked towards the site knowing i didn't had enough time to spend to reach the main scatter. We gridded...
  6. New Permission, day 2

    We went back this afternoon after we had to look on some other fields with little success. Started on the side, detecting towards the area we had coins. Lots of trash and no roman finds brought us a better picture of the site. The main area is probably on the other side of the path between two...
  7. First hunt on a new permission, back in the game!

    After a couple hunts not worth to share we met on an old site today first. We did just over an hour to look if something came up after he turned the stubble under. I found nothing roman, but the wax seal was a nice find! Not that old, but a design i didn't seen before... We moved over to...
  8. WWII Battlefield hunt in situ pictures

    With no options left for field hunting i got invited by a buddy who recently got permission to a large farm all in pasture, roughly located near roman settlements, but mostly in the autumn 1944 front line. Looking over the many acres of grass i decided to try a small valley with old trees west...
  9. Loads of trash+iron age+neolithic point

    Back on the trashy grenade field from this week. This time no shell was found, so it was a safer hunt than friday. We managed a loose grid about a fourth of the field and collected a pouch full of WWII brass. Then my buddy was calling me over. I laughed because i thought he was joking with...
  10. Slow day and an AP Grenade...

    With only one field left and even this has no site, just near one the options have dried out. My buddy got a nice celtic silver there yesterday so we gave it a second try today. It's close to the Dec. 1944 front line so WWII stuff was expected. Shrapnel was eyeballed everywhere and finds were...
  11. Equinox 0 : Deus 3

    My buddy got himself an Equinox because he "heard" it was good on hunted roman sites. I wouldn't judge a detector without having it used for some time, but here are todays results. We went to a site we had detected last week but the farmer just started drilling the wheat in. Next choice was a...
  12. My worst roman silver and a wisdom tooth

    A different site today, closer to the 1944 front line and the finds proove this. More than 80 pieces of driving band frags, casings, bullets. We need more time to clear this field. We gridded from the roman site away to one end of the field. I started the hunt with the fire damaged Denarius and...
  13. The next day on "Another Field"

    Fine detecting weather on the field we detect the last weekends. Further away from where we started the finds dry out a bit. No more early medieval finds but i found a spot with more lead in the afternoon where i hope to get better stuff the next day detecting. WWII brass and other bits 'n...
  14. Another field another silver Part II Rare Bird Brooch

    More gridding on "another field"... Not many finds today but we slowly get a picture with the early medieval finds. The field has a slope to the west and the expected merowingan settlements are within eyeshot. Lead and brass. I don't call it trash this time. :thumbsup: Flower rosette...
  15. Another field another silver

    Extending the loose grid in the neighborhood of a roman site into the next field lead to an interesting hunt. Still some roman pottery to find we got loads of signals, mostly WWII trash, but always a sign to be early on the field with little competition. Here's the stuff.... Brass WWII finds...
  16. Bale seal field again. Hammered.

    Finest detecting weather today, a good reason to do more of the bale seal field as the farmer will start there soon. This time we hit another part and no bale seal turned up! My fave today is the 13thC. Denarius. Trash Buttons, suspender clip, thimble, modern coins Tooth, top of a roman...
  17. Short hunt just to get out

    Had to fight cabin fever today. We had rain every day the last two weeks, rivers flooding and todays morning started with sun! Grabbed the detector and the dogs and got me a fairly walkable field. Not much to show, still got finds covering almost 2000 years. The roman scrappy seems to be a...
  18. Bale seal field Day 4/5 Roman silver and perfume capsule

    We had best conditions today, thawing snow on slightly frozen ground. Did i mention i like 5 pound heavy, muddy boots? Huge field for our conditions with a roman site in one corner. We managed only two hour hunts there the last days due to the weather. Not a very producing field other than the...
  19. Roman ring rebirth, or my Christmas present...

    Not a todays find, but a todays rebirth.... Some time ago i found a part of a simple roman bronze ring. Surprisingly it had a large size, almost matching my ring finger from what was left of it. I had the idea to do some metal casting for a while so with the end of the year coming close it was...
  20. Good day with old silver

    With only three hrs to spend today the field was chosen right. Pure luck. It had a late sugar beet harvest recently and is one of the last fields available in the moment. Buttons, bronze rivet Zinc, token, prussian Pfennig, 1783 billon 1/24 Thaler Roman coins with one nice bronze and a...
