    Default Battlefield Tours to Russia

    Hello forum.

    2013 UPDATE! As we are already starting to get some requests on Battlefield trips, it will be much appreciated if you are interested to take contact to me so we can plan the season. If you do not mind spending time in the field with other forum members, it will be possible to team you up so to speak and make the trips even cheaper. If dates match up of course Expeditions will start in the beginning of May and end in November.

    I am happy to announce that me and one of the guys from the digging team will arrange some tours to the battlefields on the Eastern front this summer. My partner have been digging here for more than 10 years. The areas will be the following. Bryansk, Tver and Belyi. Maybe also Demjansk. We have all the equipment needed, including 4 wheel drive vehicles, metal detectors, detectors for deep searching and what not. We start out ourselves from the beginning of May. Please PM me if you are interested in coming along.

    Some pics from our trips. Sorry about the pics are mixed.

    Thanks a lot guys. I was just thinking that when we go digging anyway, we might just offer some interested souls to join in. We don't do this for great profit. When i have time, i will post some more pics with description. I.e. when you see cracked helmets, it's not because of tanks or anything. It's ice when freezing that makes them crack. Also we found 5 "Westwall" rings on that dig. The pics are from Bryansk, Vyazma, Belyi, Tver and Demjansk.

    Lars,

    What is your policy on letting participants keep the relics they find?

    Hello my friend. If and when anybody will go on a dig with us, they can keep what ever they want. No problem at all. Some items will be difficult to get through customs without clearing from the ministry of culture. We know how to handle this. Items older than 50 years can be claimed "National Treasure", but not always. As long as it's not grenades, fire arms ect, even deac ones, it's not a problem. Grenades and shells we always leave behind. They will get dumped in lakes and so forth. Don't want to mess with these.

    Feel free to ask questions.

    Very cool! Where are you guys located? Not that I can afford it yet... but I would love to go on a dig with you and I'm sure most customers from western Europe and the U.S. would appreciate travel advice.
