Future OKM dealer and the Field of Warriors

on February 27, 2020

OKM in action in the field: This time the search project took the team of OKM company founder, business developer and training instructor to the region of Dębno, Poland, to locate historical graves - the so-called "Field of Warriors". Also on site were the project team of Stowarzyszenie Templum, the magazine Relikte der Geschichte (Relics of History) and the Sondelsüchtig treasure hunters.

Successful training, successful treasure hunting

The search action was led by Darek de Lorm, project leader of Stowarzyszenie Templum and future OKM distributor. The search offered perfect conditions to learn how to use the 3D ground scanner Rover C4 in the field - or rather in the forest.

First Training with Rover C4

After comprehensive instruction on the functions and scan modes of the Rover C4 and training of the operation of the 3D metal detector and ground scanner, the first measurement started. A second control scan was performed to validate the findings of the first ground scan.

Introduction of Georadar Gepard GPR 3D

Furthermore, the new ground radar Gepard GPR 3D was on board. Its improved features and functions were also of great interest, because underground structures like tunnels, buried foundations and burial chambers can also be easily located with the GPR. This time, for the detection of treasures and relics the Rover C4 provided more suitable functions and convinced particularly in the rough terrain of the forest.

On-site ground scans with Rover C4

In order to find (pre)historical burial sites, predetermined areas of forest were scanned with the Rover C4. The ground scans gave first insights into the ground: The scans show already excavated areas (blue color, right side in the picture) as well as potential finds which are still in the ground (red color, left side in the picture). Whether the discoveries are actually skeletons with grave goods or further interesting relics will be confirmed by the upcoming excavations. The approval for further archaeological excavations is already in progress.

Details of this project and the continuation of the search will soon be available in the OKM Blog, in the April issue of the Relikte der Geschichte (Relics of History) magazine and on the Stowarzyszenie Templum project page.
