Detecting WW2 Location – Mysterious Dog-Tag Found! (Diggers Story, Photos+)

I and my friend recently sat around and had some spare time and decided, therefore, to go detecting. Although the weather forecast wasn’t very promising with lots of rain and the temperatures threatening to be below zero degrees, we still decided to defy the northern “winter” weather. The last couple of winters here up north have been very unpredictable; one day there can be half a meter of snow, and...

You Think That All The Fields Are Empty? But No – After Plowing, More Finds Appear! (Diggers story, Photos+)

Today’s detecting location will be a field. Until the mid-30s there was a rather large village on it.

We continue the story of the Inn excavation. The first part can be found here! I want to share my first experience of excavating an old building. Back in the spring, in the midst of the digging season, I went with a fellow detectorist to an “empty” field, and according to the stories of other experienced diggers, a lot of coins were found on this field, mostly royal silver from...

Thracian Helmets Are Works Of Art! (Finds, Photos+)

The jug turned out to be an old helmet and the tourist from Germany became a millionaire in one day. The morality is simple – you need to know your finds! And be able to determine them.

And sometimes the hypotheses of the origin and dating of these objects excite the minds of fellow detectorists so much that you simply marvel at it.

The 2018 detecting season has not only begun for the diggers of coins in the fields because war-relic hunters have also started. This year, the members of the Otsing Club (“detecting club”) found a 76.2-mm regimental gun, the 1927 model, in the swamps of Narva. A total of 18,000 such guns were produced, of which only a small number have survived to this day. It’s good that in Estonia, the...
