Turn your GPS into a time machine and travel back to the Bronze Age to hunt the cache GeoWolf 7, hidden north of the hamlet of Toterfout.

 

Park your car at the signpost 'Grafheuvels' (grave hills) in the vicinity of Halfmijl. Enter the Bronze Age at the designated coördinates. You'll find yourself in a place owned by the spirits of our ancestors. Take some time to ponder upon the people who once gathered here to bury and honour their dead. They did not share our culture or technology, but we can share their feelings and respect their rituals.

After the burial ceremony, the Bronze Age farmers returned to their settlement consisting of fairly spacious dwellings made out of wood, clay, reed and straw. Families shared their farmhouses with livestock. There were storages, stock- and garbage pits, cattle grazings and some arable lands, surrounded by fences and hedges; not only to keep animals in or out, but also to emphasize the ownership of the land. The farming communities were completely selfsupporting for their nutrition, but they also traded cattle, agricultural products, tools and pottery with nearby settlements.

An elaborate network of trade routes spanned the European continent, supporting a system of barter and exchange of amber, ivory, ceramics and of course bronze, an alloy of copper and tin. But bronze weapons and tools were elite objects only to be obtained by local leaders. The common people kept on using stone tools like stone flakes set in curved wood or bone as a harvest sickle. Bronze was rare and expensive and no bronze artefacts were found in the burial mounds.

Look for the bronze plaque that explains when, why and how the mounds were erected. Notice the year in which the site was excavated (Onderzoek B.A.I. YEAR1).

Walk to N51°24.998' E005°19.855 and wonder along the way. Then navigate to Toterfout at N51°25.064' E005°20.570. Here you'll find another plaque. The year this site was excavated and documented (Onderzoek B.A.I.) is YEAR2.

You'll find the cache GeoWolf 7 at the coördinates:
N 51°25.(YEAR1 - 1062)'
E005°19.(YEAR2 - 1594)'

Please notice that the cache is NOT hidden on or close to a burial site. If your calculations indicate otherwise, they are wrong.

Happy hunting!
