    Day 1 - Hill Top Field.....AMAZING ROMAN SEA MONSTER!!!!! - UPDATE

    Could I wait for my 2 days off, could I bowlegs. I left work early today to start my holiday

    Dad had tipped me off where the Saxon Sword Pommel had come from & where I should start detecting. 1st rule always ignore your Dad's advice, they know nothing I started where my gut told me too!
    First run I got a roman coin & on that same run I got the best roman brooch I have ever had;

    2nd Century import from Gaul (France). Sea Monster called a Hippocampus. The head of a horse & the tail of a fish. The pin still moves. Its a very rare brooch in amazing condition. I can't explain how happy I am with it.

    I had 7 roman coins all with some detail in 2.5 hours by myself!

    Is it going to be a good day tomorrow?, more importantly will I sleep!!

    Cheers mate, it did cross my mind. All I need is the find & I'm happy forever!

    For those who are money minded, the book price for these is £400-£600 (about $1000)

    What about the misses

    I would like to invite you on this one, but the farmer took some convincing (1 years worth of visiting etc...), he has his trusted detectorist & until now has let no others on. I feel I'm pushing it a bit as Dad got the permission for me

    I keep it (by Law), after coming to an understanding with the farmer. We will show all, but there is no way of knowing how he will react, as it will be the first time we have shown him anything. Basically I will keep it but may need to trade off other items or write a cheque.
