    Stumbled over this (slightly dated) mention of a plumber who unearthed remains of a large POV site in his back garden. Imagine having that on your property (rented or not).
    Might be of interest to some diggers/collectors.

    I haven't heard of this, thanks for sharing!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    That is a great find.
    Now I understand the German and also and American dog tag being found,
    But why would a Stalag XII dogtag have been in the pile??

    I wasn't aware of this either. It would be nifty as can be to have that in your back yard. Better than growing tomatoes.

    A couple of years old yes. He also appeared on the One Show with some of the finds. Some good stuff coming out the ground and a lucky guy. We did offer to help with the relic recovery,(RRPG), but never got a reply to our offer of experienced diggers.

    Interesting supplementary info, Steve. How odd, that he didnt at least reply. I'd have thought one would jump at the oppertunity for some qualified 'hands on deck.'
