I started in one end of a two meter long ditch, digging carefully and searching through the soil I dug out. For once there was almost no broken glass but as I got down towards the bottom I saw it had been set on fire at some point. I found a few nice medical bottles, a handfull of cream- and toothpaste tubes and lots of food tins. In the bottom of the end I started I pulled out a good looking Norwegian Krag bayonet, thats a first for me. I ve found a couple in barns up through the years but none while digging, so the day was already saved. When I had dug out the one side I turned around and worked my way through the rest of the ditch. In the middle of it I found a German coin, and then another and another and it kept pouring out, in the end I had 69 coins filled into a trench art metal cup. Most was German but there was a few Finnish coins there as well. Sadly they was in the middle of the burned layer so many of them was in a sad state. I proceeded with digging out a crusted SA Sportsbadge and a canteen in good condition, which I think is from the Finnish Army.
In the last corner of the ditch I dug out a metal box which might have held the coins as it looked like a cash box, also a Luftwaffe porcelain plate, some scissors and a enamel medical tray.
I had dug for 5 hours and my bag was filled up so I put the dug out soil back in its place and headed home to clean up my finds and chill with a cold beer in the sun.
