Treasure Hunting at Medieval Sites in Ukraine (Story 3), page 44
All Metal Detecting Finds
I noticed Dima and Sergei also started slowly metal detecting towards the car, so I had about 30 minutes of metal detecting time left. I started scanning the area in close proximity to the car and got a little more silver - two coin-halves! Maybe there was a small market on the riverbank here back in the 1600s. During the trade, the coins were cut in halves to give someone change.
1626 1 Groschen Half-Coin
1625 3 Poltorak Half-Coin
Dima also recovered one half-coin when he got closer to where I was metal detecting.
1624 3 Poltorak Half-Coin
The merciless sun was finally descending, and we were going home.
The next day, I gathered all the finds I recovered during my treasure hunting trips to the medieval sites and put together my new collection of coins and relics.

This site proved to be a productive one and certainly should be thoroughly searched for more valuable coins and relics. There are thousands of metal detecting sites like this one in Ukraine - one would need three life-times to cover them all!
Oh well, that was my last metal detecting trip in Ukraine. In a few days, I would be headed up north, to Karelian Isthmus - the home of white nights, picturesque nature scenes, crystal-clear lakes, impenetrable mystic forests haunted by the Viking ghosts, and "virgin" treasure hunting sites. But that would be another story...
