Right gonna keep this a slick as poss:

Recap - Part I - after days of plodding and plotting a large field( finding literally nothing) I eventually arrived at the last corner and came across 1. A ring ( tat) 2. An early sestertius 3.A battered hammered coin ( ID uncertain) and a medieval strap end in quick succession - got very excited as, uncertain of age of ring, I thought I may have come across a roman spot...

Part 2 - I returned the following day and combed a further small area 1, Papal Bulla of Boniface VIIII and 2. pilgrim's ampulla found among other lesser bits and bobs.. got excited,

Part 3. Returned yesterday and continued the combing of the bit I hadn't covered in Part 2... fewer artefacts - the odd belt mount etc. lots more buttons and these four bits of silver. Got excited.

There is a lot of large stone work all over the place too; does not look natural to me but roughly hewn and all the same type of stone.. and some nice decorated pottery too. I have been really busy today so have not sorted it all and I have a really busy few days ahead so will not get back til Wednesday earliest.... but all pottery and stones etc and all finds will be out on YouTube on Friday if I get the time to edit it all into a fun film (sorry to those of which I know the mention of YT will rile).

So thanks for reading!!! And any help on the silver and cut half and half groat ( Edward III?) much appreciated! Don't know what the funny bit of lead is .. can only think small farm token...

All the B and hope you are all finding a bit!
Alexander

4 in one day? :shock: Never managed that yet. Very pleased for you Alexander. Assume you have found the site of a house. Double check the south east side of the stone spread in case there are anymore :D
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Thanks Reiver, much appreciated- it’s a bu**er the sound sometimes… it’s always so dammed windy in the middle of open fields! But I’m working on it!
