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 find some lost stuff and it worked not as expected. Just under the leafes with a strong iron signal was some rund bar sticking out at an angle. It wouldn't come out easily... Must been because the other end in the ground was bigger... Out came an old rifle. :dontknow:
