Evening All,
I have been recently bemoaning the fact that although one of my fields has been exceptional on the (mainly it has to be said grotty) Roman coin front, I was yet to find any sign of decoration or jewellery which I found surprising ( It can all be seen in my video below in case anyone is interested and thank you the DetectingHub for allowing me to post!)

Anyway, young Tascioavnus and I braved the high winds and found this ( feeling a bit like Dorothy and Toto...) - cor what a result and a bit of a relief as there had to be at least one there didn't there? And what a one... not sure of the date etc ( if anyone can help) but its one of the nicest ones I've ever found and is only missing the pin. ( Oh its just over 4cm long).

We stopped after that.... job done!
All the Best
Alexander

Nice brooch !
Brooches not my field of expertise (not that I have one ) and also because I have never found one.
Well found and well saved.
Love the videos :thumbsup:

Ooooh i like that Mr A....well found :thumbsup:
Thats a corker of a brooch :clapping:

Loved the enthusiasm in your voice when you found the Silver, you dont give a lot away in body language, but your voice did

When you mentioned "liking finding the Georgian stuff, as it means its not just Roman stuff here"
If you expand on that you have to think that your area where you are detecting has been used right through the centuries, which really bodes well for future finds...
You have already proven that with your hammered coins, Roman coins etc :thumbsup:

Great video and a lot of work went into making these videos :thumbsup:

Lovely brooch Alexander, well done,
It looks similar to the 1st century Hod Hill type & in great condition.

Even I can admire a roman brooch. That’s a beauty :Star:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Ho yus, I'll have a bag of that :thumbsup:

Glad to see that the personal items have have started to appear, and I'm sure more will follow and the story of a bit of Roman occupation will start to unfold.

Yep, you just need to get past those nuisance gold and silver coins first. :Thinking:

Thanks John, and I think I found a bit (one!) of pottery too ...
