In 2019 I detected a 10 acre horse field and found a treasure item, a gold watch and a saxon brooch amongst other bits. Here's what I found.

Gor blimey, guv - a field of delights indeed :thumbsup:

What's the item in the 10th pic? Reminiscent of a stirrup mount.

Second pic from last (treasure item) is a 15th century silver mount or strap fitting that was cast in a cuttlefish mould. Similar ones all have the central hole but nobody really knows what it's purpose was. :Thinking:
A similar one - https://finds.org.uk/database/artefacts ... /id/385921
And some more - https://finds.org.uk/database/search/re ... aterial/22

Superb photos and some wonderful finds. I remember that cuttlefish mount/ fitting - such an interesting item and love the idea of how that production was done.

Great finds from one field :Star:
