Metal Detecting In Sillamäe, Estonia

Exploring the Area of WW2 Battlefields

After that, we searched other parts of the field a couple more hours and found nothing but war junk. Ingvar had to get back home to Tallinn before the sunset, so we called it a day. The search of the old homestead was postponed again...

...Until September when I returned to Estonia from Russia. This time, I was sure that locating the site would not be a problem. It would be just a long 7 miles hike.

I left the city and took a field path that ran by the farmstead. By looking at it, one could tell that its appearance had not changed over two centuries. Most likely, the houses that once stood at the point of my metal detecting destination used to look like these.

Then I followed a path along the seashore...

...and came to another field where I found this wooden girl. She did not have a face, someone burnt it off, but she still had a beautifully carved hair-do.

After I entered the woods, I came across two brooks.
