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 Horse Decorations! (Identifying Finds, Photos +)

“Buttons from Gulliver’s pants” – this is the name that unexperienced detectorists sometimes call these finds, but of course they are wrong. Before you on this picture you can see a brass decoration buckle from a horse harness, or as we diggers like to call them, “horse buckles”. Such decorations were an invariable attribute from every farmer in the distant and not very distant past, and these days it is a...

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. Story number 1....

An Ordinary Day Of WW2 Detecting (Diggers Story, Photos+)

Have you ever dreamed about digging WW2, but have never had the opportunity to do so? Well I have, and my dream became reality. I live in a place where there never were any battles or much of action, so I do not have the opportunity to dig much WW2 relics where I live, but I have always been wanting to do so. And one day, one of my friends...

How To Properly Clean And Protect Coins And Other Finds (Instructions, Result, Photos+)

Most of the coins, relics, and other things we find with our detectors are often in a very poor state of preservation. Sometimes it even is impossible to for example identify coins and the year of issue. The degree of preservation of the find often depends on the conditions in which it was found. For example, coins and buttons found in the sand, as rule, are well-preserved, and items found...

Digging The Forest With The Fisher F44 (Diggers Story, Photos+)

I rarely make full reports about detecting, because I often tell about an interesting find. But today it will be a report about what I liked with my result. 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,...

Russian Square Coins Of Catherine I (Identifying Finds +)

Maybe you thought that the coins were always round? No, there are coins from different countries of all sorts and different shapes. Take, for example, the clip coins of the Swedish Empire – large squares and rectangles of copper, which can sometimes be found with a metal detector, but something that far from everybody knew: there were also Russian square coins! It turns out that in the Russian Empire, square...

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...

Rare Crucifixes From The 14-16 Centuries (Identifying Finds +)

When digging for relics, the finds are not only coins, but also different relics and personal items, like buttons and crucifixes worn around the neck. It seems that people used to love to fight, have a good party, or simply maybe the rope just broke and the crucifix fell off. In any case, good finds in form of rare crosses can be found: Initially, we see crosses with the image of the Savior...
