Hi/
Found these items on the same field as the book clasp i posted in finds and stories,I feel fairly certain that the spoon and duck brooch are Roman but i don`t know what the other one is or whether it is Roman or medieval,I thought perhaps it may be some kind of belt or strap slide/guide but that would be a guess, i really do need your help with that one please I afraid it came out of the ground pretty much as it is now but with tiny pieces squashed in the mud to suggest that there was a waist band running across the narrow side and there was once four holes the other three holes would have been a mirror image of the one top right with the scroll, Hope some of that make sense to you

Nice finds there Gleaner. I agree with the ID on the first two items and I'm wondering if the other item might be a roman scabbard :Thinking: chape :thumbsup:

Wow that’s a great site you have there. Of all the brooches I think the Roman animal ones are some of my favourites - nice! Is there evidence of Roman occupation on that site? Certainly bodes well for more stonking finds :Party:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Lovely finds. The duck is really sweet. My favorite is the spoon. I like things that were part and parcel of life like this. It really is time travel when they come up. It is in good nick too. I wonder what it last tucked into? Something involving fish sauce i expect. :lol:
What a fun permission. Does any pottery present itself?

yes there`s plenty of pottery, looked like it could have been a nice permission for me but sadly i lost it as soon as i got it so to speak, Archaeologial dig done on 50% of it with a digger and 6 foot bucket no metal detector`s used :x coming back after Christmas to do the rest Then there will be 160 nice new affordable houses (only those with a rubber dingy and orange life jacket need apply)
Me MAD never :(

The last item could be horse related. Might be a Roman strap distributer. Hope so.
