    Found lots of lead ... probably from "buildings"
    not bullets ... so much

    don't know why it is there?
    I know for usage in windows ... stained glass

    Few of THEM - plumbob thingies

    I contacted Mr Wolfgang from who is collecting them...
    he says it is not like any of his plumbbobs he has...
    so... it can be lead weight (trade weight) or more leaning to something relayed to fishing.

    I have found Greek coin (Apollonia - 80 BC), Roman (3rd-4th century) and Bizantian coin (6th century) on that hilltop 80x50m...
    there was a "castle" or something with houses around in 16th century...
