A friend and I got permission to detect the property of a retied farmer's old homestead. The farmhouse is just a foundation now and the barn and outhouse are in runes. The property dates back as far as he (the farmer) can remember to circa 1860. That's when his wife's parents homesteaded the place. Any advice, pointers or experience with detecting this kind of site would be very welcome. Looking forward to "swinging in to action" if you know what I mean. We will be the first detectorists to do the property. All comments welcome.
