Treasure Hunting East of Dnieper River

We asked a few local folks about any historical events that took place in this area and could be useful to us. All they could remember were the events of the WW2 in which we were not interested. As for old historical places, only one old-timer mentioned the ruins of a monastery. Unfortunately, that site was located inside the active tank shooting-range. (I wondered what ruined the monastery?)

So we had to scout around. At least, now we had a car at our disposal so we could visit many sites in one day. I studied the topographic map of the area and found a few potential spots. One interesting site was at the bend of the used-to-be-river.

Getting to Metal Detecting Site


Fortunately for us, the site looked fine for metal detecting: it was just a field with short grass. The field on the other bank was planted with crops.

A few trees would provide a shaded shelter for us and the car.

Our hopes went high when we started discovering many pottery shards scattered on the ground.
