Roman Treasures American Civil War Artefacts The reach of the Roman empire was extensive as it prevailed across Europe, Western Asia and North Africa. Our modern day world continues to reflect the strength of its influence through everything from language to law, government and trade. It is amazing what can be uncovered across the well trodden battle fields of the Southern States of America.... Each one of these Civil War bullets is a misfire that had to be extracted from the gun barrel. These bullets were pulled from the barrel using a screw, corkscrew or other device attached to the end of a ramrod. Each one exhibits unusual features such as exceptionally large screw holes, very distinct screw threads, multiple holes or deep holes making the collection particularly interesting. When Roman rule was nearing its end... citizens, concerned for their valuables (great and small) hid them in the safest place available to them... deep in the ground beneath their feet. Many would never again return to reclaim their hidden valuables and so their legacy has lain hidden in the ground undisturbed for centuries – waiting to be discovered and preserved... waiting for their story to be revealed... Every day, keen detectorists have the opportunity to uncover history... For many detectorists, where something has been found is just as important as what has been found. The first explorers created geographic maps and charts to aid discovery. From ancient hand drawn maps to the latest GPS enabled devices, this mapping can now be achieved with ease and more accuracy. Throughout the ages of history precious treasures have been created, admired, gifted, lost and stolen. Many daring explorers have searched in vain for these historic and valuable discoveries. While there have been countless stories of fabulous buried riches being found – from the coins of ancient empires to battlefield Erraticartefacts Target Trace– indicating rusty junk there is still much to be discovered. The modern day detectorist now has a much greater opportunity to uncover history by using the CTX 3030. Its advanced discrimination features, enabled by FBS 2 and Smartfind 2 technologies, allow elusive coins and treasures to be recovered, even UP from previously searched ground.
