Knights and Treasures

The village where I live is a village were even the Romans roam over the country. So it exists for a long time. We have encountered a lot of natural disasters. One of the most known is the big flood of 1953.

The dikes broke right in front of our village and a lot of times from the early Medieval times. As a result some Medieval castles were nothing more than a pile off stones.

But I have the opportunity to search at these places. This week I could search there also. And it did pay off. I found a Medieval lock, a so called barrel lock. Dated around 13/14 century. And it was in one piece. Oh man, I am again a happy man with this find.

The good old E-TRAC did it again, oh yeah. And sorry for the bad English. But I am just a simple Dutch house painting man :)

Hope you all have great finds and best regards to you all.
