    Roman,Celtic,and medieval finds

    Hi Treasure Hunters,
    I don't post very often,but when i come back from my annual Eastern European trip,i like to share my finds with the like minded people.Have no roman gold like last year,but no reason not to be happy.The best ones are ; bronze age axe,a superb spear head,votive lead tablet of the Danubian Horseman cult around 300 AD (the second one ,find one last year).Silver horseman brooch, roman silver,medieval hammered silver,spur,and over hundred roman bronze (soaking in olive oil right now). I still have jetleg so will cut it short,pictures say a million world.
    I would appreciate some help with the silver horseman. My take, it is from the Great Migration period around 500-900 AD.The horseman wearing a fishscale armor. Late roman army Had that type, but looks barbarian to me. What you think Crusader? Hope you guys enjoy it like i do. Thanks for looking.

    Wow, that's some serious history. WTG!!

    Do you fly to Eastern Europe to do some detecting, or did you happen to be there? That's quite a trip

    These are unbelievable finds! The horseman is fantastic.

    Re: Roman,Celtic,and medieval finds

    Your usual successful trip

    As you point out the horseman is not Roman, but I have nothing similar in my books to be sure which period it is after that Your guess is probably not far off.

    Damn -- banner on the whole lot, especially the horseman! Great finds.....I too have hunted in England a bit, always makes me feel like the stuff we find here is barely worth the effort for a while after I come back home! Ooooooh look a Merc!

    Way to go F.... !!! Your trip was well worth it once again I see . The finds there are much better than I used to get in sausage land, but I´m now back in Blighty for a while, so maybe I´ll get something better too Here´s hoping And keep up the good work your end
    My hearts in England, but my butts stuck in mainland Europe.
