I have searched this Roman farm site for a lot of years and in the main have found coins and artefacts which you would normally associate with a civilian farming family.

April 2018 on site I found a few worn Roman coins and this buckle which was not the normal run of the mill buckles I have found in the past.

I dropped in to the farm to show the landowner but I was unable to confirm an ID there and then other than possibly a buckle from a period unknown.

I did some research and ID it to be a military Roman buckle, arrange with the FLO to have it recorded seeing it to be out of context to the site where it was found.

Buckle handed back to the landowner to add to his collection of Roman finds I have found on his land.

A real beauty. Buckles can be pretty boring sometimes as we tend to see the same ones over and over but that one is both unusual, a lovely design and in great condition :Star:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

That's a lovely find Doug, I don't think I'd have even realised that it was a buckle. :thumbsup:

What a little cracker :thumbsup:

Interesting that you say it's out of context with regards to a hitherto civilian site, as I had the self same thing with a military pendant and it's so far the only military item that's cropped up.

Thank you.

French Marine Artillery late 1700's(?) is even more out of context on this site? (Found June 2015)

Button may have come from a prisoner of war or possibly a battlefield looted coat.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Many thanks.

I came across this photograph on my computer for what seems to be the buckle and strap end.
