Medallion Form The Kievan Rus! (Diggers Story, Photos+)

Every detectorist has a story where he has detected on land which he thought was empty, but still found a good find. It is always pleasant – a find among the earlier finds. But I’m not interested in the very fact of the pleasant find, but rather the answer to the question: how did it get there? How could you miss a valuable object? The answers to this question can...

Finding Roman Silver With The Fisher F44! (Find, Photos+)

There is a field near my city, on which many ceramic parts from the Chernyakhov culture (2 -5 c. AD) can be found for many centuries. This ancient settlement wass from the times of the Roman Empire, and it was huge (several square kilometers), so it’s not at all surprising that there are different kinds of stories about this place among diggers, I even know some of them.

Excavation Of An Ilyushin DB-3 Bomber Aircraft Near Vyborg (Finds, Photos+)

WW2 excavations my friends, are not just shells and helmets, but also military aircrafts, vehicles and so on (with great success and desire of course).

On a day off, four of us left in the morning to one promising forest. That area was interesting because there they have found a lot of different objects of the Cossack times. The forest I was planning to detect in,...

German Wehrmacht Mess Kits “Kochgeschirr” (Identifying Finds, Photos+)

A standard German mess kit, or “Kochgeschirr” as the Germans call it, consisted of two halves; the bottom or the “mess kit”, closed with a lid on top, which could be used as a pan. They were originally made of aluminium. The height of the Kochgeschirr is approximately 14 cm and it can hold about 1.7 liters. It is shaped kind of like a kidney when viewed from above. The...

SS Shells- Interesting Finds! (Identifying Finds, Photos +)

Among the collectibles of different pieces of World War II, there are people separately collecting everything related to the famous SS. These are often the most valuable and expensive artifacts, because even the buckle on the SS will cost several times more than an ordinary Wehrmacht buckle. One of the most affordable items are the SS shells, which do not cost too much, but grow in value because they are getting...

Finding Silver With The Fisher F75! (Diggers story, Photos+)

The Fisher F75 is an amazing piece of technology, and truly my favorite detector. It is light, works perfect and it will do the job😊. I have had very many good finds with it, but the most recent one is one of my favorites: Today, me and my friend decided to go out detecting, because there was such a nice weather, probably the first summer day here in Norway. We...
