Great finds I was always told that Loos is no good for field finds!

Presumably it helps if you are very familar with the ground and hence know where to look...

Good evening,
there is a lot of explosive on Loos.
you have to be lucky to find an interesting object.
this from old to rare.
there are quite a few people going to metal detectors on the sector.
as everywhere, urban planning is gaining ground.
