Exciting Gold finds from the Bronze age in Denmark


June 11, 2014 08:00am

The story of how I found the gold ring comes here.
I had bought a Minelab Safari and go out and try it on a grass field. I knew that was previously found 6 gold rings from the Bronze Age, in this field. I had probably gone and searched for 15 minutes when I got a good signal. My search partner who walked beside me, came over with his detector to see if it could be something good. I told him that it was probably a gold ring. It was just saying for fun. I stick the spade down and rocking it up. I did not believe my eyes.

Roman Coins - Roman Stamp and other finds.JPG

Video Success Story

Again new finds with the CTX 3030 Minelab detector!

I was once again found in the same field as the last two times and had 12 Roman coins, but also as a old Roman stamp!

Where I was looking for an earlier Roman cavalry unit and this stamp probably belongs to this unit.

You can see on the stamp a warrior, a team of horses and a chariot ... so I think that this stamp has part of the Roman cavalry unit.

Find of a lifetime

I had just got home after working 12 hours and I was tired but knew farmers were out planting and thought maybe they hadn't got to a field that I've been working. I headed over there and to my surprise the dirt wasn't turned. This homestead was on my county's 1872 map and gone by 1914 and I had dug 3 Indian Head Pennys including an 1866. After 20 minutes of swinging, I get a 44 hit on my Minelab X-TERRA 30 which is above quarter. I expected something big but probably junk. To my surprise I saw a large oval with a U S on it...I could not believe my eyes. I was in the middle of a field staring at a Union Civil War Belt Buckle! To my knowledge no other Buckle has been recovered in my county and is really rare find. I may never find anything better but I will surely try!

Romain Coins and Relics with CTX3030.JPG

Today on 20/5/2014 I was with my metal detector CTX 3030 looking for coins. In addition I have visited a place where formerly a Roman military camp and a Roman village is standing.

After 4 hours of searching I have 7 Roman coins have been found, including a coin of the Emperor Constantine ...

Unfortunately, I have also found some of trash and other iron parts, but I have my CTX 3030 only been two weeks and I need some practice in distinguishing the sounds.

spear 2500year.JPG

After a few days of research due to being housebound from non-stop down pouring I had a couple days’ worth of hunting planned and mapped out. I started my hunt at 8:00 in the morning in one of my favorite hunt spots. I’ve been searching and recovering from this particular site for over 3 years now with every winter passing it turns up new finds. I spent the majority of my morning there not finding much. It was probably due to the amount of time I had already spent there in previous hunts. Just before I was about to leave I got a sweet dime signal at 5 inches down. I dug until I could see the back of the barber dime glistening at me. After brushing it off I discovered it was a 1900 New Orleans mint Barber dime with hardly any wear. Not as prosperous of an adventure as before but at least I found something.

So a few weeks after I did the discovery of the grave, the excavation was about to start. I had talked to my boss and got a week off to take part in the excavation.

The excavation went on for 4 days and we recovered lots of nice objects.
We found a sword, a spearhead, some arrowheads, a scythe, 2 sickles, a briddle and after the excavation x-rays showed there was allso an ax among the objects.

4,000 Year Old Bronze Age Lunula

CTX 3030

May 12, 2014 08:00am

While out on one of our weekly digs with the Stour Valley Search and Recovery Club, in the heart of the Dorset countryside, I was privileged enough to find a piece of Bronze Age gold, with a possible age to it of approximately 4,000 years.  It started like every Club dig with a friendly chat as we all started to arrive and then a quick briefing about the field we were going to detect in.  The field was permanent pasture and the Club had visited it several times before.  Previously I had only been there once.   On that occasion I had only found a couple of small bronze coins and a Georgian halfpenny. As lunch time was approaching my finds bag was similar to my last visit, which consisted of two small Roman bronze coins and a medieval buckle.  I headed across the field to see two Club members and asked them if they had found anything interesting.  The answer was “no, nothing yet”.  At that point I decided to head straight across the field to join other Club members who were having lunch.

Saxon brooch .jpg

A few weeks ago I went with a search buddy of my to a favourite spot where if have found a few nice things from the Saxon period. The field was heavily ploughed. But we could still search. After only 10 minutes I found a broken Saxon brooch. Bummer, again a broken one was going around in my mind. Then 10 meters further a nice smooth sound from the deep. And it was deep, around 30 cm. But it was a tone that trigger me to dug the hole. And there it was a very beautiful Saxon brooch with a length of 7.5 cm and!!! It was not broken. Man o man I was happy. I found that day 5 brooches with a another very very first century Roman brooch. Now the search is done here for a month or 2.
