Gun Found Whilst Searching For Ancient Ruin

Written by: Peter Fishlock : 25 Nov 2019

A friend of The History Project 'Scott'. Recently bought a very old house on some land with even older history. He invited us to metal detect the land and whilst carrying out that search we noticed a footprint of a building on an old map. [Video is at bottom of post]

There was no building on the land in the area where the building should have been, we could see some raised features and what started out as a simple detecting video ended up with us digging for the ruin.

We would like to thank Danny Herriot Sport Massage Therapists for sponsoring this episode. Sponsors like him keep us writing articles, making videos and providing free history experiences for children in and out of schools which we believe to be really important.

If you like what we do please consider helping us out by giving a small donation. It only takes a second and really helps us out.
