Thanks "kac", "Joe D." and "Valens Legacy" for the welcoming.
The job occupies me a lot at the moment but I will try to take pictures of the outings.
"Joe D." : My parents have been retired since this summer so we are renting the land to other farmers, the property in total must be about 150 hectares, it is not very big for France, let alone seen from the United States. But it is very big in the department where we are because the smaller properties are numerous. My parents made the sheep (about 900 animals), and they sold the lambs for the meat market mainly. They also sold some grain.
For my part, I planted truffle trees for the variety of Melanosporum "black truffle" truffles, which I harvest during the autonal / winter seasons and I maintain the trees outside.
For the finds, they are from all eras, Roman / Gallic until recently.
The most common coins in the department remain copper coins called "Double Tournois" produced from the 1200s to the 1700s, coins during the revolutionary period of the 1780-1790s (I love the one called "bell metal" , to summarize during the revolution, the precious metals necessary for the minting of coins are lacking, therefore the church bells are melted for the minting of these coins ...) and also the coins under Napoleon III.
Detection in France is very complicated because the law is very ambiguous. There are a few lawsuits filed against YouTubers or other resellers. The Drac, the organism responsible for archelogical research, has been pursuing a hunt for 2/3 years.
The law says that it is forbidden to detect with a metal detector if it is for archaeological purposes ... And even to dig ... You can search with a metal detector for your fallen watch, ring, agricultural parts ... And besides selling metal detectors is legal / permitted ...
