Searching for Ancient Village Site in the Fields

Then I saw it - just a Soviet 1929 3 Kopeks coin - not a big deal.

20 minutes later, I dug up an older artifact - a bronze pendant ring. This common relic could be dated back to the 13th century.

The scarcity of signals made me realize that this spot certainly was not the location of a medieval village. But, no doubt, I hit a "hot strip" in the field.

I was about to continue walking in the same direction and swinging the search coil in a wide-arc motion, but the heat was taking its toll on me - I could barely walk straight. I had to get into the shade and rest immediately. I quickly made it to the nearest windbreak and lay down in the grass. Even "hot-boiling" water in my plastic bottle could not spoil the pleasant feeling of a cool breeze that was lightly passing around my body.
