Relic Hunting In Karelia (Story 15), page 1

Metal Detecting Viking & Medieval Relics

This story describes my metal detecting outings in the area near the city of Priozersk, located on the southwestern shore of Lake Ladoga on the Karelian Isthmus, Russia. The story is rather large in size because of many photographs of places and finds taken during the hunts. Below the map, you can find the Table of Story Contents which is to help you in navigating.
