Metal detector, anyone?
« on: 21:59 14-Aug-2017 »
I've always been curious about the history of our old house and the surrounding countryside. Our place was built in 1914 and I learned from a neighbor over the weekend that the fields behind our place (a few hectares adjacent to a very large forest to the west) were a battle site, including my part of the field. Our neighbor was only 7 years old but she remembers bodies of Nazi's piled up and burned after a battle along the forest line.

I enjoy looking out at my fields and the forest so much more now with that Nazi blood in the soil.

Like mushroom picking, digging up old Nazi, hand grenades to sell at the outdoor market, is a venerable Ukrainian tradition.  Sometimes they find a whole truckload of vintage explosives and save them to throw in fire pits on Independence day.

In our place, some serious murders happened in some flats. However, they are very easy to sell if the owners lower the price a little bit. :P
By the way, can you check any murder case happened before buying a flat?

To make money this way you have to be prepared to get your hands dirty.
