Digging in Latvia

Digging in Latvia

Hi to all!

I am inviting all history lovers to participate in exiting metal detector searching for relics of WW2 in the territory of Kurland in Latvia.

 With our expeditions you will be able to visit the front lines in its hottest spots and the rear, where the German army was surrender. You will see trenches, bunkers, coastal fortifications and many other evidence of this historical moment. With the help of the metal detector and the shovel you are sure to find the relics of those years, you will touch the history with your own hands. And it will be not just emotional moments, but a memory, that you can keep with you at home.

    You will have a professional guide with more than 10 years experience of digging. He will bring you to the most perspective places, will take care of your safety, give the necessary advice and in the evening, after the expedition will take you to our "Bunker" hostel, where you will stay in cozy rooms in military style, inspired by the events of World War II. You will have the unique opportunity to spend the night among the relics of the Second World War, touch the objects found in the territory of Kurland Kettle and in the depths of the Baltic Sea, from the sunken German ships.

In the evening with extra charge you can order dinner or cook it by yourself in our equipped kitchen, which has a fridge, a microwave oven, a toaster and a teapot, planning your next day expedition with the help of the German maps of 1944 y. We have garden outside the hostel, where you can enjoy barbeque and have peaceful discussion of the past expedition. Standard breakfast is including of the price for the guests with package tours, tea and coffee are free for all our guests. Also free speed WiFi is available in all hostel as well as free parking place for our guests.

We are looking forward to see you and offer unforgettable vacation with a touch of history....

Bad weather? - Not a problem!

This spring is too cold. In some places the ground was frozen at 10-20 cm
Despite this, there were several successful trips.

Very pleased with the Kriegsmarine officer Buckle, a few good helmets and Russian medal.

MEGAFIND

The day started badly.
I did not know a place to go to dig, where I have't been.
A colleague suggested going to a deserted railway station "Bart."
Next to it were several German headquarters.
I did not like this idea - all the places around the station for a long time totally dug and there hard to find even a rusty nail.
When we arrived at the destination, the worst fears were confirmed - all the bunkers were dug to the bottom by our competitors.
Unearthed tin cans and almost no signals were not given a hope for good luck. Mood completely deteriorated.
But the detector gave a stable signal.
The signal was bad, like as a tin can, but I decided to dig up, because there was nothing more to dig.
Signal has been deeply bayonet spade and it gave some hope.
At a depth of 30-40 centimeters dug a piece of leather.
I immediately realized that it was a loop of gun holster. Further digging by hand only :)
Holster was not empty, the inside was a Russian TT33 gun. It was already a good find.
I checked the hole with detector, the signal is not lost, it was much better!
I continued to dig by hands and on the surface of the pit began to appear German badges.
It was great fun!

Most of the badges will soon be on sale. I'll let you know about it, those who signed up for the news.

Now look at the photo report ;)

I only had two trips, but the findings were excellent!
Unfortunately did not take a camera, afraid that the cold and snow will spoil it. Because

End of season 2011

Long time I don't wrote the blog ... simply did not have time to do it.
Excuse me, next year I'll try to do it regularly.
This year has been eventful. The forest gave me a lot of interesting experiences and findings.
Autumn and winter was surprisingly dry and warm, that is good news to man who regularly travels to the excavation.
Even in this bright holiday, when I decided to write you a little, behind the window-zero temperature)) (we usually celebrate Christmas with snow and frost, but not with rain)

I can tell you about each of my travel some interesting things and I will do it in next year.
But now I want to show you more photos,  not write. Most people are accustomed to seeing beautiful things in the pictures, not read about them and create pictures in his mind. :)

We say "better a to see once, than to hear 100 times" ;)

Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Andrey & Jekaterina

In late January, the snow began to melt a little at sea, and I decided to go to a former German airfield. I was very lucky in those days.
