Was out today on a dig near Shrewsbury…

I found the soil conditions quite difficult and it took me a while to get the Nox settled down and running reasonably chatter free…

Some really nice finds came up, although mine were a bit more run of the mill…

Apart from the usual buttons and toasted coppers, these were what I found…

Top left is a tiny fibula, while top left is an Officers Cap badge, bottom right is a small unmarked lead item, which I think is some sort of weight.

The item in the middle is what puzzles me…I think it is some sort of awl with part of the eye missing? If anybody can confirm that and maybe venture a date I would be most grateful.

It's kind of like an umbrella spoke? :Thinking:
