Metal Detecting in Estonia
Locating Ruins of Old Homestead

The site would be on the other side of the field; the rampart would lead me there.

The path that runs along the rampart would continue its course through the woods. I had to get off the path and scout the dense forest on eastern side. I started paying attention to the ground in hope of seeing any traces of the old homestead.
