Got out this morning early doors as had to be home early, as the Mrs had to work :Party: ,
so drove round for a quick recce and saw a Roman field ive permission on had been partially ploughed and harrowed,
shouldnt of gone on as I know what its like (sticky as ) but can never turn away from it as its pretty prolific when it wants to be, anyway, a couple of lines (walking) and yep, I was right, I shouldnt of gone on, far too sticky, boots clogged, groins aching, you know the score,,,,,,,so, I thought, get off this field and try another,, will have to bite the bullet and do a bit of stubble as my ageing frame cant take 100lbs of mud at the end of each leg anymore.
So, decide to do an up and back on the headland thats still in stubble to help clean my boots off and had the little horsey ( twinkletoes) brooch right were i'd had a nice few bits( but medieval) last season, very nice, thank you field :thumbsup:

I feel my mojo rising.

Oh wow - I’d put up with having to dig up a load more grots to get one of those. Now that is a proper Roman find! Beautiful :blow kiss:

Had these bits off the next field I went to, button/cufflink but not sure of the other two, one is like a small handle with a hand made thread on one end, the other I'm not sure, it's decorated with wriggle work and has a nice patina on it, unusual shape though.

Could your decorated piece be a posh but early Gunters chain marker?

Like your thinking but I dont think so BA, its farly thin, not so robust and has that lovely blue/green patina though difficult to see on the photo :thumbsup:

That ‘wriggle work‘ decoration is early isn’t it? I found a couple of strap ends with it on but can’t remember the dates I was given (and refuse to look where it was ID’ed). I feel like I should know what it is but I can’t remember.

I’ll go get some wine to lubricate the brain cells :Party:
