I, like any treasure hunter, have as the most favorite site for treasure hunting. so and the most nightmarish. It keeps Roman history, and it’s got a lot of iron things on it. The soil there is very mineralized in places, and therefore it is extremely difficult to work there, especially, it is difficult to pull anything out of the ground.
And then one day, walking along the edge of this area, I slowly got used to the new metal detector Minelab X-Terra 505.
I soon discovered several small targets located in the layer of plowed soil, including the pigeon ring, several lead rifle cartridges, and Yes! … several Roman Grots. Then I plucked up the courage and went to one of the worst places to search.
Lowering the coil low to the ground, I achieved its balance. Not every detector will be able to carry out successful searches in such a complex area. But I was able to adjust the metal detector properly, reducing its sensitivity by three-quarters of the power, and I started to explore the area.
After a few minutes of searching, I was rewarded for the works of jerky, but a clear signal. The detector found several well-preserved Roman bronze coins. Soon the signal was repeated. And again Roman coins were found! Terrible conditions for work did not prevent “505” to find values. I knew what signals the detector reports about the presence of iron, so I did not waste my energy and did not react to them. By the way, other metal detectors, previously tested by me, distinguished iron from more valuable metals much worse.
After a while I stopped to rest and look at the findings. I had one denarius, 12 Roman bronze coins, a few Grots, a piece of Roman clothing clasp, a thin silver disc bent, buttons, tin, a few pieces of lead and others mentioned earlier, a thin silver disc, a tin button, a few pieces of lead.
It was my best day at that precinct, and I’m gonna go back there to give him another chance.
