Local resident Aivar Piirsalu from the town of Öötla in Järva County was exploring a seemingly ordinary field with his metal detector on October 26, when he discovered and dug out jewelry from 500 years ago.

After digging a 35-centimeter hole, Piirsalu called archeologist Mauri Kiudsoo to the scene, wrote the newspaper, Järva Teataja (http://www.jt.ee/?id=333199). They found nine greenish chest ornaments, as well as five silver beads and several gold-plated silver pendants.
