Relic Hunting In Karelia

Rare Viking Relic Find

Before resuming my relic hunt, I decided to have a breakfast and regain my physical strength at my "camp" which I set up inside the patch of tall grass.

Tall Grass Shelter

A folding foam pad laid on the soft grass - all the comfort I needed to rest, or it could be used as a table during my meals.

My Improvized Camp Site

A minute after I was done with breakfast, I was "back to work." With increasing daylight, I could better see where I had not scratched the ground yet or missed a spot. One such a spot yielded a third musket ball.

A Musketball Again

The "unscratched" area was producing lots of junk because I knew that this was the hottest spot so far and now I was digging all junk signals. But there were still a good targets in between.

Then I dug up another button.

Plain Button, circa 18th Century

It turned out to be a Russian Imperial button marked with a design. It depicted a juridical pillar topped with a monarchical crown and inscribed with a word "Law."
