Out with the old chap Saturday, in a corner of the field where we hadn't been for years as there was a couple of old buildings there & it's full of rubbish with large iron, tin & lead everywhere, the farmers had a tidy up of the area & getting it ready by discing it ready for drilling with the rest, a few old surface bits of pottery was keeping us detecting there, some interesting finds came up, the ring looks old, but the Michelin man Button doesn't, but worthy of another go when it's a bit flatter after the machines have been over it.

Like the ring in the bottom two pictures :thumbsup: :thumbsup: wondering if it may be late iron age early roman, similar on the PAS :thumbsup:

Good selection of finds and pottery pieces.
The Michelin Man item may well be collectable.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Lot’s of good targets there amongst the pottery. I’m rather taken with that boot item too :D

Nice to see such familiar pottery - I think the past inhabitants of your fields went to the same shops as mine :lol:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Thanks very much Steve,

That ice skating boot made us laugh,
I think the DMV mostly all shopped at that Medieval retail park near Bicester called Brill & Boarstall Ware Ltd.
