Crossing the B.C. Time Barrier at Medieval Market Site (Story 2)
Being exposed to the direct sunlight, we were seriously suffering from the heat. At some point, I had to lie down in the shade just to recover from digging a couple of holes. We were constantly pouring water over our bodies. The worst was that we were not getting anything but modern junk! Finally, after two hours passed, we recovered two Russian imperial coins circa 19th century.
Silver 1889 20 Kopeks (Czar Alexander III)
1850 1 Kopek (Czar Nicholas I)
We did not find anything from the Medieval times period, and Dmitry agreed with my assumption about us searching at the wrong spot, the right spot being under the water. We rested a little more, packed our gear, and began walking back across the river and then through the village to its opposite end.
That was one of the most difficult hikes in my life! Thank Gods of Metal Detecting, we found the well on the way and refilled a few plastic bottles with ice cold water!
