Found Bronze Pig with Minelab Explorer SE
While I was metal detecting in England in the Spring 2010, using a Minelab Explorer SE I happened to dig a very interesting target. First, I have to tell you the make-up of the day. It was late March and one of the wettest Springs in their history. Needless to say there was a lot of rain. This particular day was no exception. In the middle of a downpour in England mud (the stuff that sticks to everything), my metal detector rang out a very loud audible tone. I started to dig my target, and dig, and dig...the rain hammering me and the wind blowing...and all I could think was I am going to dig a smashed aluminium can. To my surprise at about 1 1/2 ft. deep, I finally pulled my Target from the hole. It along with about 20lbs. of soil. I pulled a bronze pig/boar from it's resting spot for the last 1800 to 2000 years. And if you can believe this, once I dug this from the ground, the sky cleared and the sun came out, the wind even stopped blowing. My pig and I were both happy to be rid of the mud for a while.
