Managed to get out on Friday on some lovely ploughed and rolled land. Absolute divine bliss compared to the ploughed ankle breaker it was a few days before!
One day only though, as just seeded :( so made the most of it. Didn’t find anything earth shattering but did pop out this reasonable coin - a Constantine by the look of things. More info would be good though if anyone has any suggestions.

Plus another medieval strap slide. These don’t seem that common but I must have found 5 or 6 on another permission in the last couple of years. Plus a scoop like tiny spoon, which I’m assuming is broken from a set of rotating seed scoops?

A few other bits and pieces, including a bit of scrap silver. Eyes only finds include a glass marble, an early 18th century pipe bowl, plus a few stems.

Perfect day for detecting - warm, not too hot and with a few black clouds in the skies to keep me on my toes. Just got into the car to go home and it bucketed down - perfect timing!
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

It looks sooty like part of something that's been used on a fire.

Ooooh Oxgirl found a Roman...please let there be more to come to for you :thumbsup:

Sounds like a great field once the stuff has grown and been harvested or mowed :clapping:

Think it was enamelled? It looks like it anyway :D

You are right, it has given me quite a few hammered and I’ve never left the field without some silver :thumbsup: . It’s a great permission and thankfully the adjoining field is still in rough plough so I can continue on that one for a bit longer :D

Well done Cath
The hard rain has washed the top of the fields, making the eyes only bits stand out whilst detecting.

Sorry about the Roman, Cath, but it is in quite decent nick. Don't you just love eyes only finds like that pip bowl? Looks like it could be quite an early one.

Pity your time on it is so limited, but hope the adjacent field proves as productive :thumbsup:
