Treasure Hunting with Rodney In Central New York (Story 7)

When we arrived to the metal detecting site, I understood why everybody could not wait to get here fast. It was a classic spot, and the most pleasing thing about it was the grass "cut short" by the farm animals that had been grazed on this "pasture." We parked the vehicle as far away as possible from the cellar itself.

Metal Detecting Site with a Root Cellar

What was classic about this site? First of all, it was a root cellar inlaid with large stones and in fair shape: three of its inside walls were intact.

Cellar Hole Inlaid with Large Stones

Too bad the cellar had been used for dumping the wood fence's rotten poles, tree brunches and shrubs, otherwise, it would be interesting to scan the cellar's floor. Not far away behind the cellar, there was a small pond.

Cellar Hole

Right next to a cellar was a small apple orchard, or whatever was left of it.

We began our search on the opposite sides of the dirt mound that surrounded the cellar.
