    Dere Street (Return)

    Hi all...

    had a few hours on the Roman road known as Deer Street, this is the main Roman route North to the Roman town of Carlisle.

    The road is being turned into a three lane motorway and it is a perfect oppertunity for detecting ancient sites as the fields bordering

    the old road have been given a compulsery purchase order on them, permission was gained and i had a threee hour hunt that was quite productive.

    First good find a battered tealby penny from the reign of Hennry11 1154-1159 (this is the third I have had)

    I managed another hammered from the narrow strip , Elizabeth11 half Groat 1558-1603 (in poor condition)

    Over the comming weeks I should be able to get a few more hunts in and I'm sure a few goodies should come out.

    While I was detecting a couple of detectorists came over and we got chating, one had just come back from Milto keys were he had found a

    beutifull quarter Gold Stater, I took some pictures for you guys to view.

    too bad you couldn't sift through all of that loose dirt. I bet there are a lot of things hiding there

    Yes you are quite right, the second hammered come from the spoil out of the stripped area and the mound was about ten feet high

    Yes it is , and it is going to take three years to complete, the extentions go through some important ancient sites.

    That first pic looks like a dream set up for metal detecting. Also looks like you're getting some further detecting depth this way

    Those old coins are so cool and I'm sure every one of them still is a thrill to find (eventhough you've found many).

    I sense Banner finds coming from this hunting site

    Ahhhh! It's killing me! You guys can find Romans on the surface, a few inches down, and now you get roads carved out for you! That's it, I'm flying out there this fall. Keep us posted, have a feeling that you are going to be showing us some real nice stuff.

    You guys have it great on that side! I wish I could have just one day in those fields.

    The coins aren't too shabby as well. You are due for a Roman silver!

    Keep the passion high!
