A sneaky few hours back out on the land again . Short spell this time due to the weather , its was freezing cold and out came the hand warmers and woollen hat . The contrast in the weather compared to the other day was miles apart and even with cloud cover and a sneak of sunshine it was still uncomfortably cold .
First decent find was yet another fossil , the unmistakable Echinoid nosing itself out of the soil . This one is in top condition with no damage and I just cannot resist bringing these home .

Once again on the Hot programme which I am really enjoying and the light weight feel of the new machine is a huge difference to what I am used to using , nice and lightweight makes comfortable detecting .
I had the usual signals and the usual finds in the shape of a medley of ring pulls which sound so promising as do the shotgun shells and a mixed bag of foil and strips of aluminium . Every now and again though I am blessed with a decent enough find and first up was I initially thought was part of a military cap badge with the wording " Manchester " which oddly looks complete and I am wondering of this could be a shoulder strap of sorts . Pleased with that find which gave a little hope I ventured onwards .
This time round I decided as I had only a few hours at my disposal I would just walk the edges of one of the long fields and it was a good call when I finally got a pretty good signal that had a bit more of a solid sound . In went the spade and out popped this neat looking ampulla , not complete but near as damn it . Well pleased and best find of the afternoon .

Some of the afternoons finds , couple of interesting bits and what looks to be a beaten a Roman coin .

An ampulla :shock: ! Oh wow that’s on my new bucket list. Very, very jealous!

Great finds all round. I’m on a famine run whilst you are knocking it out of the park. Hope it continues for a long time (and mine doesn’t! :pulling hair out: ). Great to see you really bonding with the Deus :D
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Some nice finds there, a cracking echinoid. The bar is maybe part or a purse frame! It does look like a WWI cap badge partifact - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manchester_Regiment. :thumbsup:

Blimey, that little lot was worth going out for, eh?

Any markings on the ampulla?

Some nice finds, Paul.
The Echinoid would have made the session without finding anything else.
The Ampulla and Crotal are great, does the bell ring ?
You may even have a surprise or two lurking in the " others " pile once it is cleaned, which is always worth doing on some of the randoms.
Roll on the 29th March.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.

Which is precisely why, never having a realistic chance of ticking everything off, I don't have one. I know my limitations! :lol:
