Amazing photos :Star: amongst all your lovely finds I’m drawn to the bottom right item on the Sunday finds photo. That looks Saxon/ Viking :Thinking:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Excellent photos Steve, cheers :clapping:
Its a busy site for sure and again a nice key for me to drool over
Love to know what these keys were hiding, not exactly a technical secure looking key but i imagine high tech for its time.....
wonder if there was a lockpicking trade back then?

Very productive weekend there, Steve :thumbsup:

Whenever I see openwork like on your mount it always shouts Anglo-Scandinavian. Not always the case of course, but always worth a close look.
