That's a nice strapend there Paint :thumbsup:
I'm not sure that the next RCM rally will be able to top this years - the land was super productive, with little waste on it. The weather was great - needed some rain in the week leading up to it, but hey, at least it wasn't as wet as their first Rally :D

A quick question, and I feel a bit dumb for asking it....
as has been well publicised over the RCM dig weekend, lots of Saxon items were found in a relatively small area of what was field 6. It must have been part of a settlement or a route to / from it. There must have been 10+ Sceats found plus other lovely silver items. The area I saw for several of the Sceats coming up, I would guess was about 100 metres square.
Would these fall under the treasure act, and need to be reported as a possible scattered hoard?

I think it would depend on the age distribution, otherwise near enough everything could be a scattered hoard.

I don't know enough about saxon stuff to comment on these finds even if I had seen all of them, which I didn't, as I said, saxon stuff hides from me as I'm a French invader.

Sounds like it could have been and certainly should have got expert advice. Sceats are not that common and so many over a smallish area does make you wonder.

Edit: did you know they were considered money for the afterlife and led to the majority of English gold being sucked into the Vatican bank? One of the first proper full on successful scams! Here, here, swap your big bit of gold for a little bit of magical silver so you can be rich in heaven too :lol:

Seems like a very succesful & well organised event and a fantastic £40k+ raised for the charities. :thumbsup:
