I knew the reason: there were many stone foundations and other debris from the village that once stood here. After I dug some brass casings, I detected a coin that was 300 years younger than Forrest’s find. Considering the large diameter of the coin, I thought that if this coin was missed by other treasure hunters, there would be plenty of smaller ones still left at the site.

But I knew a brass casing/coin ratio for such areas, 10 to 1, and did not loose my enthusiastic mood. Finally I was rewarded with a cool find.
