Managed only 2 hours out yesterday due to other commitments :problem: but still managed a few bits and bobs.

Was still a fair breeze blowing so made a point of keeping clear of the debris from the trees on the field as wasnt in the mood for a branch on the head, was nice though, I do like a bit of the force of nature, just have to remember to set the Deus down into the wind so as not to have to run after it accross the fields like a loony :lol:

So, the finds then, lots of small targets, was using the round Hf on 50 odd khz for a lot of the time, bronze Celt ( Cunobelin CVNOBELINI) thats great to find but not the best condition, Rose Farthing with a very weak strike on the left side of the flan, a dinky little awl, smashed Eddie penny and a gilded harness mount with some decoration on but a load of corrosion stuck immovably on it :lol: so, a few bits but as is normal, being buried hasnt done them any favours ..........sound like im moaning but im not, it was absolutely lovely to get out in the fields and find stuff :) :thumbsup:

Blimey, don't you ever have a duff day? :lol:

That cut penny - is it a badly-cut farthing or a broken halfpenny, would you say?

So I was wrong on both counts, then? :lol:

It's just that I thought one edge was straight and the other not, but I'll shut up now :D

Fair play fella...nice array of finds for a few hours :clapping:
I am always amazed at the amount of different objects that we find on the fields, each has its story of how it got there
You have a busy area for sure thats seen some footfall over the years :thumbsup:

Nice little selection! That pendant looks like it might have a cross on it below the crust. Be very interesting to see if it cleans up. You must have been on hyper drive with the digging though! :lol:

To be honest Bruce, finds are a lot harder to come by there than they used to be, some days you just walk over it though I guess :thumbsup:

It's got some sort of wriggle pattern going on on the gilding Cath, I managed to clear the crud off the bit showing but it's really difficult to get off.
I think there is gilding under all the crud because there wasn't any crud over the reddish area where the gilding is missing :thumbsup:

That looks really nice. If you can soften the crud to get it off that will look even cooler :D

Until quite recently, that comment would have had me circling my index finger around the temple area of my bonce, as in: "never mind him, he's clearly deranged." But waggling an ever-decreasing lump of soil in front of the coil has a certain magic to it and these days the pinpointer rarely leaves its holster :thumbsup:
