Back on my favourite new fields today. I started in glorious sunshine so decided to drive my car on the track on the edge of the field to save a long walk. Good plan. Well it was a good plan till I realised the field edge was full of waist high prickly weeds so I had to spend 5 minutes cutting my way through them to get to the field itself :shock:

I decided to start off in the area where I found the purse frame on my first trip. Even after driving the car to the far end of the field so I was nearer I still had a 10-15 minute walk across the field. But that’s without swinging a detector! It actually took an hour because it would be rude not to detect as I walked :D

Found another Lizzie half way across. Same year as the one from last week too - a 1575! Not sure if it’s another threepence or a half groat because it seems a bit smaller. Maybe just clipped :Thinking:

Anyways I eventually arrived at the far end of the field and my hunch there was a hot spot there proved to be true. Found another bit of a purse bar. It’s not part of the purse frame I found last week either! Shame these purse owners hadn’t dropped any money round that area though :( .

Buckles, mounts and the usual find types followed. Fun area though with very little rubbish. Even the poor finds were copper sheeting, copper sheet rivets or big bits of bronze or lead.

Then it started raining heavily so going back to the car took 15 minutes! And that was swinging the detector too :lol: . And picked up this small piece of decorated silver on the way. One end is twisted and there’s a gilded flower in the middle. It feels 17-18th century and isn’t flimsy. Any thoughts?

Enjoyable few hours even if the finds aren’t earth shattering :thumbsup:

Well done Cath
Good finds there,
The piece of silver with the flower is part of a medieval annular brooch,
have a peek at the PAS site for more.

Ohh er, there's some nice stuff coming up on the new permission, grounds getting better too with all the rain, a great start and gets the blood pumping to spend as much time as you can in the field

Especially as I think I’ll only have till the end of the month. If they spray off the weeds it’d be a lot easier too. So please can the weather be dry enough for that but then too wet to plough and seed? If so I’ll be kissing the weather gods :lol:
