We have a number of dig sites nearby. The nearest being Glauberg. Waldgirmes, where the gold plated roman horse head was unearthed last week is just north of us, to the east of Giessen. I spoke with an archeologist while visiting the Shirn Museum in Frankfurt a few years ago and he said it's a good thing that most people are not aware of the sites waiting to be dug up. A few have been plundered and judging by the relics taken from the celtic prince grave near Glauberg, the loss is immeasurable. I'll dig for pics taken at the museum. You'll love em. IF I can find em.
Are there any dig sites you would like to discuss?
