About your host

I have taught contemporary history at university level for more than five years and I always wanted to be able to find pieces of our recent history by myself using metal detectors.

What we’ll do

We will first meet at a specific point in Grunewald Forest. We'll learn some history of the area and the role it played during WW2 and the aftermath of the war. We will learn the basics of using a metal detector and then we will start looking from WW2 souvenirs. You can keep what you find!

What I’ll provide

Equipment
Metal detector and small shovel.

What to bring

Bring comfortable clothes and appropriate shoes to walk by the forest.

Where you'll be

The metal detecting activity will take place in the Grunewald Forest, an area used by the Red Army during WW2 to enter Berlin. It was part of West Germany after WW2, and NATO also conducted some military trainings in the area.
