I found this little item yesterday on arable land, not too deep beneath the stubble.

I don't get many finds from the permission, but I've had them from various ages, the oldest being a little BA partifact.

I wondered if anyone might be able to help me date (or even identify) these 2 objects? :thumbsup:

Some sort of strap, belt mount perhaps, it has a bit of the leather still atttached.

Not sure with this one, some kind of decorative item perhaps?

I have found a few of the first items. I think they are harness mounts. Assuming that it is hugging some leather? I’ve found them in areas where pretty much everything is 1600-1650. Maybe the style was used for a long time though?

No idea on the second item although it does look familiar. I’ll go rack my brains.
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

I've been out 3 times Pete, since the last video and I've really struggled to find anything half reasonable. I didn't think that modern coins were worthy of filming. :pulling hair out:

I think I have just about have enough for a video later in the week. :D
