    I forgot to mention the Celtic iron fibula I found!

    I dug this beautiful Celtic fibula on the first day of my Bavarian trip. This is the second one I have found and dates to 3rd century B.C.

    Must be nice to just forget to mention a 2300 yr old find
    That's AMAZING...and your 2nd one.
    Did you envision, before you left, your German trip would turn out THIS successful in finds?
