Was that on an MDG dig? I had the absolute pleasure if holding a Spear like that last year. It was a Roman one. I just stared it in in awe.

Beautiful things to find, well done :thumbsup: Very jealous too 8-)
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Thanks for the reply it is a stunner of a spear head it’s been well protected over the years and the edge is sharpe as the day it was made

Now, that's my kind of hoard :Star:

I had the rare privilege of turning up for a training day with my FLO and there, in the room we were to be working and spread out across two tables, were the contents of a huge BA hoard. I was in seventh heaven and couldn't concentrate on what I was supposed to be doing all day.

Great find(s) :thumbsup:

That is a amazing find and very well done to both of you,did you detect a slightly wider area around the finds as some times other could well be close by,normally you find 2 types of BA hoard finds either alot of basically broken bits awaiting to be melted down or a pit with brand new items in the pit.

Once again well done.

Now that’s what you call a spear head. Great find in wonderful condition. :thumbsup:

A few steps up from the one I found. Clearly iron and in poor shape. But I was totally convinced I knew what it was. Off it went to be officially I.D’d and recorded.
Came back with a short note. I.D.’d as a decorative point off a Victorian railing :oops: :lol:
We all live in hope and anticipation :roll:

p.s. I went one better a few years later. I found a Polished Neolithic Axe Head .They soon recorded that one :thumbsup:
