Here’s a quick hunt from last summer, where I went exploring a new permission, trying to find old house sites. After walking a good ways through the woods, I discovered a few signs ( or clues) that tell me an old house site was once in the area.
I only had around 30 minutes to investigate the site with my metal detector, til the bottom fell out. I will have to go back again! There could be more relics left!
