    Just one more thing, I live in Normandy, I speak French and I always ask permision from Farmers and land owners over here, it's not a free for all! And not everyone gives permission, you do have to do this sort of thing with pemission.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Very very good. Its so important to keep up good connections with local landowners as with the authorities. Beeing an archaeologist myself I really appreciate that. Keep digging and above all documenting your finds
