Treasure Hunting at Village Kozheritsy Site, page 3

As soon as I saw his find, I assembled my Explorer and started turning it on while running to the field. I noticed that the grass there was taller and thicker, usually a case of the field being abandoned by farmers for some reason.
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 Forrests 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.
