Default Found maps!

Did some digging and I found a good map resource. It has hundreds of old maps from the area where I've already done some hunting. In the attached pic the oval and arrow point the approximate spot where I found the 1777 coin, that old lock and the other stuff mentioned in my 'farm' threads.
The map shows the camp of Finnish/swedish army during summer 1742.

Good part is that I can either order large size maps on cd for $30 for first map and $15 after that or I can just set up a date and time for browsing these maps locally. The website has these small maps but they are good enough to identify the region. But it's gonna take me two months or so at least until I can find a spare weekday for browsing these maps. Oh well...nowadays this area is mostly fields, so I guess I'll have to wait until after harvest and then hunt some fields.
