We were fortunate to get out on some newly drilled land in dry weather!

We recovered 18 Roman coins, a denarius of Septimius Severus (AD 206), a sestertius of Faustina I (AD 150) and other artefacts.
As mentioned in the pottery section, we recovered over 2kilo's of Roman pottery from the field surface.
This piece of potery below is really special, a fragment of Peterborough Ware, Mortlake sb-type dating to at least BC 2700 and may be as old as BC 3500.

Beautiful bit of pottery :Star: Love pottery fields, although they are rather distracting!
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
