Green waste of course :sick:

Had a couple of hours at the weekend, very limited for land at the moment but there are a couple of strips that are still bare.

One such has given up a lot of good finds in the past but these days its a bit of a Last Resort, its saturated in green waste and has been for years. Its not just a little bit, I can set the Deus so I get at least one signal a swing but I obviously dont do that, or not for long anyway :D

So most signals that I would usually dig or at least investigate are just left be, otherwise I wouldnt get anywhere, anything ( pretty much anything) under 60 is just passed over. There is the odd one that you just have to dig and they do sometimes turn out worthwhile but very rarely.

So, a lot of digging but many more signals, its not too bad once you tune your head in, quite fun actually but I wouldnt do it if I didnt know there was stuff there to be had in amonst the disgraceful amount of junk that was semi legally dumped on our green and pleasant land.

Was great to get out but a couple of hours was enough, had a couple of Roman and bits and bobs, biggest carpet rod holder ive had I think but the best find was a Cambridgeshire Militia officers button dating to around the end of the 18th century, apparently of a pattern known to have been worn in 1796 :thumbsup:

Just a little wait now and everything will be happening at once, wont be a lack of land but a lack of time to do it, bring it on :clapping:

Now that is a high trash ratio, the kind of place just for the occasional short go. At least you got a few bits to save the day. :thumbsup:

Hell's Teefs, that sounds (and looks) like a heavily contaminated field and I'm not sure I'd have the patience to go at it, even for a couple of hours :thumbdown:

But you did and got a nice few bits by way of reward. :thumbsup:

I’ve been thinking about the glut of land many of us will be enjoying soon. I know it’s a ‘spoilt detectorist’ problem but it really is a dilemma. I’m mentally writing a priority list in my head whilst I circle my permissions trying to assess when they’ll be harvested.

God it’s bad this detecting lark. I’ve become a mad woman staring at crops and testing the hardness of wheat to see how far it’s off harvesting, assessing the likely crop rotation plans, trying to ‘accidentally’ bump into farmers to get more info and watching the weather forecasts like a hawk :lol:

Glad you got out Alloverover! Shame those Romans were such litter louts with coins but glad you were rewarded with a lovely button ;) :Luv Ya:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

That`s a nice Militia Button in Silver Gilt.
Nice Roman too, with plenty of detail to aid an Id.
Just reward for digging the waste.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Its a bind isnt it Cath :lol:
Condition of the land always sways it for me, pointless going on a great field if the ground isnt right and can be very rewarding going on a not so good field if conditions are perfect :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Thanks Dave, the small one is a barbarous FEL TEMP REPARATO soldier sppearing a fallen horseman type and the one with the wreath is a CAESARVM NOSTRORVM reverse, bit difficult to say who it is exactly as the obverse is shot and the inscription within the wreath is difficult to be sure of :thumbsup:

It's great when you can turn up a Roman or two and you've found a couple of lovely coins there. :thumbsup:

Ive had a lot of coins from there over the years, they generally come out good condition, just very sparse now with the GW to contend with.
