    Last trip to france with old goodies .

    Hi guys im back from another detecting weekend in the south of france.
    The weather was verry nice and we had some great rare finds.
    This time we found we think a merovingian grave site.
    Around 500 AD.
    I found 3 merovingian buckles.
    Buckle 1300 and a coinweight from 1500.
    Enjoy.
    Greetings again from holland.
