    Hi Nick, it is indeed illegal to use a metal detector in Holland. This area has been dug over many times over the years by different people. You can see the evidence. But you can still find stuff if you walk the area and think where the fighting might have taken place.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Steve et al, I thought I would add this link to "Google Earth". From this you can also get a good idea of the area:

    I forgot to mention in my earlier posts that the area was also an Iron Age Hill fort. You can see a circular clearing in the woods with a large raised "hill" and in the pics on that linked page some more views from there and in the woods in general.

    Cheers, Ade.
