I was going to go on my Roman site but as there was a lot of rain yesterday and the field has been drilled i stayed off of it, But the farmer asked me why i wasn't on my favorite Roman field . I told him i was not sure if he would be happy with me on it when it was so wet , he said crack on you cannot do it any harm :thumbsup: But i did leave it until 4pm and had an hour on it . A decent Hammy came off of the stubble and all the Roman bits came from the Roman field . Any ideas on the brooch ( not the regular dolphin one the other one ) And another spikey dude popped up that seems to be quite common of that field ( five so far in two sessions between two of us )

Well it was eight hours but only an hour on the Roman field the rest was on surrounding stubble fields that oddly never pop a Roman anything out :o I think it is because the field i call the Roman field had a small Villa on it :thumbsup:

That brooch looks like it’s trying to be a buckle too! Not seen anything like that before and am interested in what ID it turns out to be :thumbsup:

Love the shortcross :Star:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Wow is that really a brooch John?
I would have had that down as a buckle
Really interested to get someone to put a definitive ID on that one
Feel free to make a another ID post with just that brooch on it so as to draw peoples attention to it :thumbsup:

Some great finds there too, well done :clapping:

I think it is a buckle. This one isn't the same but gives you an idea of what family of buckles it could be part of https://www.catawiki.com/en/l/21257903- ... late-8-1cm

I'll look in my Roman buckle book tomorrow - well actually it's Roman military stuff, not just buckles. May as well get looked at as I've never had to use it for any of my finds :D

Well it has a spring so I would say a fibula/brooch of sorts but it doesn't appear to have a catch plate? :Thinking:

Blimey, that was a productive day. Very nicely played :thumbsup:

The brooch is very unusual and I'm thinking Hod Hill type but Alloverover will hopefully be along soon to correct that :D
