Spent the day metal detecting for Thomas Englund at the battlefield of Baggensstäket, anno 1719 (as blogged about before: 1234). This was my third time there, and the first time I’ve helped on the northern half of the area across the water from where I live. Thomas found musket and pistol balls. I picked up an 18th century coat button and loads of steenkeenggg aluminium bottle tops, and saw an abandoned tree house. I’m particularly interested in the pre-battle finds that are starting to accumulate.

    Well yeah, you know, being the Antichrist and all I kind of expect people to start the big one some time soon?
