Managed to get out this morning, bit sneaky, dont tell the Mrs :angel: should of been at work but.... ;)

Anyway, it was lovely, was out on the field just gone 7am and stayed till nearly 1pm with not a care in the world, quality time with me, myself and I, much needed 'me' time :thumbsup:

Had the 9" round hf coil on the Deus and switched programs quite a few times, settled on a modified fast in the end which pulled out most of the goodies.

Lots of signals, pilgrims ampulla with a design on ive not seen before, a few hammered in the shape of a couple of Lizzies and I think an Irish penny sadly broken, whats left of a Roman period Keyhole brooch and a few other bits.

Main thing was it was fun, most enjoyable time ive had out for a while really, lovely weather and a few finds to boot,,,,,,,,now.........its beer time :D :D :D :thumbsup:

Get a grip, young Phil - the only time it's not beer time is when it's gin time :lol:

There's something about bunking off work which makes any finds all the sweeter, and yours are certainly sweet. I'd call them (and the environment you were in) a day well spent. Even the George looks to be in good nick! :thumbsup:

Good going Phil-meister!

The ampulla is interesting and I think I have a theory about the design after I read a very comprehensive (bordering on obsessively comprehensive :lol: ) study paper on the subject a couple of years ago.
At these shrines there was usually a flagon/ bottle of the Holy oil or water etc which was blessed and used to fill the ampulla that was taken by the pilgrim. The decanter/ jug that the Holy stuff was dispensed from is what is featured on some of the ampullae designs. Also the bottles were usually kept in draw-string protective bags of fine cloth. These are the shapes which are often confused with the 'scallop shell' design which is wider at the shoulders and only has a passing similarity to the 'bag' ones which often actually feature the representation of the drawstring as part of the design. In short, the design on the ampulla is a representation of where the contents came from.
I so like me an ampulla. :blow kiss:
Live long and prosper.

Interesting stuff Jan, I assumed the bottle decoration was something like that but didnt know.
What else is a bit interesting about this one are the suspension lops arnt actually pierced, tried poking the mud out but its lead, no holes. Either a manufacturing error or they are just there as a representation of loops ?? Very strange :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
