I went out on my new field that’s been meh in the first 4 hours of searching, so this evening I went back out for a couple of hours. I didn’t have any sandwiches but did make an offering.... and it sort of worked as a couple of bits came up.
A pick-up biscuit and a Murray mint was all I had.
I’m now a convert to making offerings to the field :thumbsup:

I'm more of a crystal man myself. I've been carrying this thing round since it was Sharp. :lol:
This particular crystal is supposed to help with wealth. I have it in my hand when I choose my numbers.
It hasn't exactly won me millions but I've certainly come up on the lottery and scratch cards 6 times. £5 here £10 there.
Oh, and that $300 I won in Vegas on the slot machine when I kissed it. :lol:

In Ireland, particularly in the north, it is not unheard of the find large blocks of ancient butter in bogs. It’s called bog butter . Some people think it was left there as bogs were used as a sort of ancient fridge, as bogs have a low ambient temperature; others believe it was a gift to the gods. Who knows?

I might try a bit of butter though and see if it helps 8-)
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

There you go Phil. I saw the banded reverse initally and thought Vosenos maybe? Happy with Dubnovellaunos though!
My first local gold coin and it really is a fab clean strike/Die.
Thats what sent me off reading about dies/blanks/iron age coin production and its all really rather fascinating!
Especially how people perceive the imagery on them.

Pick-up biscuits are just too good for a field, Murray mints are fine I don't like them. :D

It must be time for another offering as the fields are not Releasing much recently.

I tried offerings and mostly it didn’t work. I had one outing when I wasn’t finding anything so I sacrificed a couple of fruit pastels, no change.
So I changed tactics. I gave the Detecting god a good talking to and asked if he was taking the mick.
Couple of swing later I got a good clear loud signal. I thought ah, that worked.
What was it ? A b..... pot leg.
It was a nice one though :D

Lovely Steve :thumbsup: Dubno it is and a nice one, yes the imagery, peoples views tend to go from the sublime to the ridiculous and everywhere in between but its all interesting mate and im sure youve formed your own views ( which are as valid as anyone elses) on the subject, specialy given how close you are to Tannit ;) :thumbsup:

While searching in a bog up in a hillside once I dug up what looked like a solidified Crusty bread roll. I can only assume it was an ancient Bog-Roll as another theory is The bogs were also used as toilets.
