A nice few hours out today all be it a tad bit cold in the wind on a Roman field I have not been on for a few years.

Field is awaiting the plough at some stage looking at the piles of manure in the corner of the field. (dairy farm)

Equinox 800 using The Searcher program with the Coiltek 10 x 5 Inch Elliptical DD Coil.

Thank you Pete.

South West on the Somerset Devon border.

The old and now bypassed (in places) Roman Fosseway runs through several of my permissions.

Thank you.

Several farms in the area sit on a natural sand base with just narrow depth of soil on top.

There was not a huge Roman presence in my area (North Wales), so not too many finds from that era..In fact I have only ever found one Roman coin and that was rather toasted, but I still felt like I had won the lottery! :D
