    Two days ago I went on a business trip on the River Don.
    This is the area most north desert in the world - "Don-Archeda Sands"
    I found the shells, it's from the Civil War (1918-1920)

    About an hour ago I returned from the excavation.
    Job annoys me. I can dig only at night

    Today I found a silver pendant, this is of imperial Russia

    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

    I would literally crap myself if I dug up a skeleton. Or even a bone. Good job taking care of them though, giving them burials like the men they are. German or Russian.

    I am very impressed you found RIBBONS. I even saw the Sudetenland medal. I smiled at the Tank Battle Badges. Amazing stuff! Keep going I support you too!

    Yes Ron, it was my full-time job: I work from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. After dinner, at 9:00 pm I'm going to dig and dig to 11-12 pm

    Today was the same.
    you remember this place, it is close to the university where I studied.
    Today I dug up the Romanian dog tag

    This is the 16th Romanian dog tag that I found in the ravine...
