    Dear Paul E,
    I know Galina Oreschkina, but she unknows me)))
    You must know that Galina is very popular woman in Military Archeology by Volgograd)))
    About find:
    things on the pictures found in last Spring, Summer, Autumn (2009). I said that season 2010 just begins.
    Now, at Stalingrad is very cold, like Winter 1942, really))) brrrrrrr.....
    But last weekend I went to Gorodishe, it was in vain. I found only a few rusty bullets and shell fragments and frostbitten my ass)))

    Hello Sebastian, I always prefer to see the ground dug items more than the untouched or unissued ones. I think they show so much more of their history! Thank you for your photographs - Australia is a long way from Europe so we can only dream of digging like you can!
