For anyone still interested, another update on the gold finds.
I don't want to bore you good folks silly with these finds , but if anyone is interested I had an update from my FLO earlier this week.
She informs me that she had heard back from the Finds adviser at the British Museum to say that the terminal is a better fit for Early Medieval than later, and they are less sure about the pendants dating. But will have to wait for final confirmation on this until they are taken in for examination.
As we all know working on photos alone is difficult and objects can feel and look very different in the hand.
My FLO also informs me she is in talks with Museum management as to how and when she can organize covid safe drop‐ off meetings .
But every cloud and all that , it allows me to hang onto it for a little bit longer.
So that's the state of play at the moment,
will keep you updated when I have more news.

I went back earlier this week and gridded out an area 60m×60m into 10m squares and detected each square in all directions.
What a soul destroying job that was, if I never have to do that again,it will be too soon.
Still, it had to be done, but only produced two half pennies, one Victoria and one George 3rd and a couple of bits of lead.

Bore us silly? Quite the reverse! These are the sort of finds which we all love to see and it's been a real pleasure to be kept abreast of their story - a story which isn't over yet - so thanks for the update, and keel em coming
