I'd be happy with those - if you're still pulling up pendants like that, I'd expect there'd still be plenty more finds to come up....

Okay here’s the cleaned up items…

Part of an ampulla. Pretty much top of my wish list so even though it’s plain and not whole I am still chuffed!

The hammy is a Durham mint one but I’m being very lazy tonight so help with a full ID would be very welcome

The other coin I’m stumped on. It’s not like any Roman I’ve seen as it’s way too thick. It’s too far gone to get any detail but I’m presuming now it’s a coin weight. Thoughts?

The fly terret/ harness pendant is post medieval as Allectus so eloquently told me :lol: It is put as 1500-1800 on PAS but I’d say 18-19th century. It was a good 8-10” down and I love it despite not being medieval!

Other finds include part of a medieval tile, a big chunk of medieval pottery, a lead stylus, a thin Tudor belt decoration, a couple of handle bits, the obligatory musket balls and pistol shot and lots of lead.

My gut feeling says Roman, its got that irregular round look, or is it a much earlier pre roman? a coin weight would not be that far gone I would think :?:

A head scratcher for sure :pulling hair out:

Na cause then I'd need to find it again. Scrap goes in the bin ;) (that was a joke for anyone who has lost their sense of humour today :P )
