Evening All,
I have been going round and round a massive field on and off for days finding next to nothing but a feeling that there MUST be something in it somewhere... it just gives that vibe. Today I found the zone... a tiny area in the last corner I eventually got to... I will go into it all in more detail another time as its worth it I think!

Anyway I found this! Almost, if not, mint! I don't think I need to add any more info as you can plainly read what's on it...

I found my first bulla a month or so ago but it was rather squashed and its going to the landowner anyway... but that's karma for you ( I know all about karma as I have just finished reading "Shogun" - a great book but I haven't the foggiest idea what it was all about...)

Oh, and I found the ampulla quite nearby...

All the Best
Alexander

Cheers, :thumbsup:

Hell's teefs, man, that looks like it was made yesterday! Best I've seen :thumbsup:

Shogun's a belter of a book and a half-decent fist was made of making a series out of it. I think there might also be a fillum.

... I really enjoyed it but when I finished the last page, took a breath and put it down I realised I had no idea what went on in the last 600 pages... and that's about half the book!

Got to say that is a very nice find!
I have been lucky enough to find a St Peter's head cut from a Bulla and then pierced at both ends to form an amulet.
Would love a complete one but you definitely need to be in the right place to find one!
Well done, a lovely find. :thumbsup:

Stunning finds.

Nobody who has seen the film "When Harry met Sally" can ever forget the scene in the restraurant when in response to Sally's (Meg Ryan) actions the lady says "I want what she had". Well the way Alexander is going recently I want what he has before going out detecting :lol:
