Turning up at the permission on Monday, parking place was unavailable. Following the road, found another parking area.
Was just about top enter the field, when i thought, i`ll try the other one i have access to this season.
First signal, US lead seal from an ammunition crate, that`ll do me. Next 6 signals, all ammo crate seals, all in a 20 minute period, in a contained area of around 3m x 3m. For the 2nd time in the past couple of months, context has come into play. Rather than having a solitary artifact, that either means a casual loss or is just a one off remnant, here i was in the area where the Armourers had been working.

Also found on the day but elsewhere, a slider possibly off a Blouson belt.
Spent the next 3 hours trawling up and down one side of the field and then did a few patches.
Fair few shotties, including a 28 bore.
27 items dug, the only thing that appeared to be pre war was a fragment of a buckle.

Also recovered a Co Operative London Society, Sterilized milk bottle, that had 2 holes opposite each other for a hinged stopper/top, bit like the ones you used to get on Grolsch beer bottles.
For a last minute change of location, first 20 minutes not what i was expecting and the rest of the session just normal.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.

I've been looking to see if I could find a match to that buckle and struggling for a definite example, it's got a lot of age to it that's for sure, :thumbsup:

Thanks for taking the time to look, Steve.
Shame i did not find last week, as i met with the FLO that Friday.

Thanks Bruce, 1600 years, mainly 330-40 AD, but 2 concentrations.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Seeing the history of that area unfold can only be a satisfying thing, and well done for unearthing it, Dave :thumbsup:

Good days and some not so good days, it all helps to reveal the land's history. The seals are pretty cool. :thumbsup:

Is it a buckle? It might not be, surely it could be something else as it isn’t quite the right shape. It could be part of a strap clasp or something else vompletely. Agree it has some considerable age though :D

Very glad to see that you had lots of fun - who doesn’t love a seal :D

I will stick my neck out and say strap end partifact.....nothing exact that I could find, but could be as Cath said a clasp from a clasp buckle
