Hi,

another very nice find was this 27 cm long lance made out of bronze. It?s from the middle bronze period 1500 - 1300 BC

Wow! A really nice find!
How do you work out the permits in Germany?
Here in Sweden it?s quite hard to get a permit and since people from other parts of Europe have been coming to Sweden and especially Gotland and done some "Nighthawking" and digging up loads of old stuff and plundering the ground, it?s now quite difficult for serious "hobby" detectors to use our machines... Sad

Me and Mr. Simpson are quite lucky that the state of Bavaria where we reside, does not require any permits. It is only illegal to hunt archelogical sites of course. However the law differs from state to state in Germany.

Best wishes,

Christian

@Niobium
interesting.... i thought that detecting in Sweden is not allowed and no private person would get a permit there. In fact i also heard that already to have a detector is illegal ?
Is this true ?

By the way....going detecting in sweden is something that i really would like to do  Wink

MrSimpson-

The permits are controlled by a state "unit" called "Lansstyrelsen", it?s totally ok to own a detector but using it without a permission can get you into problems with the law, etiher you get fined or a nice time in prison for up to two years.

I know Gotland especially have some "banning" of detectors since especially, no offence to you, German tourist have been plundering the fields, since the whole area of Gotland contain treasures from early metal age of great historical interest.
Visby is the islands head city ant theres loads of info on that big town wall, having medieval graves / trenches from battles being fought since medieval times.

Metal detecting legally in Sweden -

That lance is really cool!

It's too bad those laws are so restrictive over in your countries. I fear those tough policies are expanding and with time will be seen all over this globe. Hopefully time will prove me wrong.

farmdigger;

I doubt if a ban will become world wide. Idiot

Take my location, as an example, there have been only two battles, here. The first  was the killing of traders, by Deneh, at a fort (not a real fort) at the mouth of the Beaton River, around 1730... UBCs Knut Fladmark dug that site several years ago. Wise

Second battle, was much later and some were killed, but the Metis carts were all pushed over the (so called) cliff above (old) Fort St. John.... there will not be any metal to find, as the carts were ALL wood and rawhide.

Above the Old Fort St. John site, there are thousands of graves of people (mostly Deneh and Cree) who died in a measles epidemic, around 1900. My bro-in-laws grandfather, did most of the burying, as he was the Factor of the Hudsons Bay Post, and the HBCo were, more or less, law here, at that time. A real potential job for GPR, because NONE are marked. Waveing

I traipsed all over that hillside, as a teenager, but missed the graves... they were not visible, even then, I stuck to established trails, is probably why I never fell in, like some have. We HAD to stick to the trails because of rampant Opuntia fragilis (prickly pear, northern specie.) Exhausted

Since I had relatives, in N.Washington and Idaho, who died of measles, around 1897, I figure it took 3 to 4 years, to get to N.BC. Slow! Not like now.

Jes some fun his-story, there. Detecting

The harsh laws about metal detecting in Europe is often because history artefacts is actually more then 1000 years old and not everything was written down or information lost. In the states the history of all the "boat refugees" that fought the natives, and later on introduced the slavery, is all written down and documented, its about 300years old.

It?s quite interesting since the origins of all the people nowdays is a serous and fantastic mix of people from all around the world making a presentation of what a great nation it has become.
The laws in the USA is indeed fantastic since they are based on the constitution giving such freedom to you all.

Well, sorry for me getting all excited and carried away... Tongue
