Seller: incatreasuresltd (1,582) 100%, Location: Colorado Springs, Colorado, Ships to: US, Item: 192038643727 Unusual shaped long axe head with flared “ears” on the base. Old dug up piece with great colorful patina. From Gothic or Roman empire near their borders along the Northern end of the Roman Empire. Most likely gothic piece. I purchased a number of these excavated axe heads from the seller who dug them himself and has some video tapes of some of his digs on U Tube. This unique axe head is 2000 years old in original and recently dug condition. Heavy patina and the age is apparent with the patina advanced due to years underground exposed to the moisture. A great conversation piece. This may have been used either as tools or weapons as may have been needed. This gothic axe comes from 2-300AD and were brought by Germanic people of the Baltic Sea followed the Vistula, Bug, and Dniester rivers and settled among the Dacians, the local neighbor dwellers of local areas. Rome’s Empire had built a series of limes along their borders and were increasingly harassed by the Goths. Although gothic attackers usually chose unfortified targets of which there were many cities in the 3rd Century, but were generally restricted to smaller towns and villages by the 4th Century, as more cities were fortified. Alternatively, they could attack fortified targets, relying on surprise, on treachery, or on siege warfare. Projections referred to as “ears” were often typical of these axes. This axe could be included into Chernyakhov culture period - small but lethal enough to cause a trouble. Purchased from the person who excavated it in the Carpathian Basin, Ukraine.

And we're recording when we are 100% sure that we are digging something valuable. This is why hands are shaking... worries, gambling feeling, adrenaline rush. We used to record when there was a good signal but it was pure garbage at the end. As for halberd: our lands were crossed by different armies from east to west. because our mountains are relatively small. Sites are to be found on plains. But we got all private agricultural fields on plains and we're doing our walks in forest areas. Our forests are public... yet. Celts loved to settle at this kind of places. First, you won't get flood on uphill. It was quite "watery" here back then. Lots of mountain rivers with fish. Forrest were full of game. Now everything is dry. The main guidelines are, of course, barrows. Barrows are basically Celtic Burial sites - small hills, about 2-3 meters high. It would be much better to dig those. Barrows contain mainly ritual artifacts and few other things. We know about 73 of Celtic barrows. Only druid barrows have some value. Although, we don't know which barrows are druid ones. All druids had golden torques. When Celts buried deceased they included all his/her belongings together with ashes. Our Celts burned bodies. Torques would be a jackpot. Check the internets. Around all the Europe people dug numbers of barrows and European museums contain these artifacts which were excavated in barrows only. We have idea how to materialize such finding but as usually everything depends on money. ……right now it's very difficult, from economical perspective, to live here. Because of this treasure hunting became too popular - everyone thinks they'll buy detector and will find stash with golden coins. Feels like history repeats itself in some manner - talking about USA's Gold Rush era in Alaska. So, we try to keep things silent, no advertisement for our findings and videos.
