A real warm and pleasant weekend that I managed to get two day detecting as the wife was on nights, only needed a T shirt, clear blue sky and gentle breeze, even saw a couple of dust devils through the day lifting the dried out maize bits, the usual wildlife and a couple of squirrels really have a good scrap, it was a nasty scrap too, enough fur pulled out to line a hat…lol

Saturday 17th the pheasant cover strip has been part ploughed and part deep disked, seeded and rolled, ground very dry and loose so worth a second going over from the previous weekend I thought.

Just about 3 acres in total and although not many finds or junk coming up but produced some goodies, a bronze stater, roman brooch part, George III halfpenny on the surface, a buckle plate, and old key and a small ring possibly horse tack or a myriad of uses, too small for a finger ring.

And the usual dross of buttons, some bronze slag, a fuel tap head off some bit of old machinery and a strip of metal with some markings

Sunday the 18th to finish off and go over where the bronze stater was found Saturday and the silver one week before, and low and behold another silver stater (all three within a few metres), so gridded the area and went in different directions four ways but nothing else was discovered, so will have to wait until after harvest to get on part of the field in crop and too tall to detect between this weekend finds and the silver and gold staters found in the adjacent field only 300 metres away, its all tying in with my theory on what is here!!

A silver stater, a watch winder, roman bronze still trying to ID, a lovely Denarius of Domitian, reverse curule chair with wreath, 69 -96 AD, a buckle and some locking device for what I am unsure?

No idea what the curved long thing is but I want it to be candle related although it isn’t!

Lovely finds :thumbsup:
