This photo was taken on January 6. This is last day of my marathon in the excavation (from January 1 to January 6).
Do you remember when I dug with my friend? We found the tram rail.
I dug up this. The rail production of English company BARROW STEEL, made in 1875 I think this rail from the tramway of the city Stalingrad, this was built in the early 20 th century.
Also this day, I dug up: a different garbage and scabbard for the bayonet 98k...
Sebastien you are so lucky to be able to dig all this stuff!!! all I can find is old nails and tin cans

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
House Carles at the Battle of Hastings
I finish my story about the winter excavation.
These excavation were 9 th and 10th of February. At this time the soil is deeply frozen and so I used a crowbar.
9 February, At first I dug up а Romanian dog tag. Also I found a Romanian coin and other military rubbish...
I allways look foward to what you will find next thanks for your posts.
10th of February, was not a good day ... interesting find only one I found a Romanian coin ... and the eternal companion of mine excavations is different military rubbish.
White object looks like to the ink, but I'm not sure ...
