The next morning I jumped out of bed excited at the thought of what these 4 acres could hold. Not only was it a 19th century home but the land was literally only a few 100yds from the historical marker talking about how the town was settled in the mid 1800's. I also know that there were lots of Confederate Soldiers that passed through this area and to say that I was excited about hunting here was an understatement.
A farmer wife lost her wedding ring of 40 years in a paddock and didn't realise, Later the same day they run a plough or some sort of farming machinery over the paddock as they planted it out with grass seed so the ring was likely buried. They're pretty certain it was lost in this paddock so they asked if I could try find it knowing I’ve recently taken up metal detecting and had heard I found an old Gold Miners ring on a prospecting adventure when I went looking for Gold nuggets
The day started off like all of our detecting days; by driving around pondering what site to hit. We decided to stop at a new permission along the shores of the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick, Canada. We dug a few modern targets, but nothing too interesting. I decided to follow the field down to the waters edge and detect the shoreline, as the main site is quite grown up. I found a spot to get down to the shore (a flat spot with a 5' drop to the rocks below).
While metal detecting in Lincolnshire, I unearthed a silver World War 1 identity bracelet.
I set about trying to find out a bit more about the soldier, with a hope of finding surviving descendants.
I remarkable story emerged.
