    Good stuff... is that flare gun ammo or something? I'd love to dig a bit before the frost and real winter comes in once again but my detector's pretty crap and I have yet to do any decent research re. the Trondheim area --- I've mostly been going to plane wreck sites and a few local positions the last few years.
    One place I would have loved to have even just a rusty shell from is Gratangen, this as my grandfather was up there during the April '40 battle (see my avatar).

    Anyway, keep your finds coming.... looks like you're onto some decent areas!

    I am jealous of you folks in Europe. I believe if I lived there I would spend every free minute detecting and digging! Guess I will have to live vicariously through the forum and YouTube videos. Thanks for posting!

    Would you be up for a dig when the snow melts after winter? I'd love to travel over and do a bit and see what I could find!
    Ryanair fly to Norway !
