    Shaun7's Celtic Gold Field - Day 1...

    Unusually for me, the plan to continue the hunt on the No.1 Field changed. I wanted to explore the field that Shaun7 got his Gold Celtic Coin, but as I was wandering I realised that the very wet conditions might make it worth trying over the Gold Spot again. We did this area very quickly whilst being chased by a tractor & on freshly turned soil, so the odds had improved. I was going to grid the area that the Gold was found & then move back to the No.1 Field (next door). Problem was Roman Coins were popping up everywhere & I soon started wishing for a Roman Silver
    (9 hours baking on my own)

    The results shocked me, as I got as many Roman Coins in 1 day, as the whole of last year (from this field)
    21 Roman Coins
    6 Lead Tokens
    Royal & Rose Farthing
    17th C Token
    Large 17th C Button
    Crotal Bell - Rings nicely
    2 Cloth Seals
    3 Medieval Leather Mounts
    1 bent Tudor Book Clasp
    Nice buckle of a type I have never had complete (I think 17th C, but will need to check)
    Georgian Coin Weight
    Fragment of Roman Silver Ring
    Roman Pinhead
    Plain Bronze Roman Ring
    Military shoulder badge (new type for me)
    3 Hammered;
    James I 1613 Halfgroat
    Henry III cut Half
    Edward III Farthing (see other post)

    The key to any successful hunt is to get the coil over the target.

    I think you've established that pretty well.

    How deep were these finds? If in the 8-10 inch range (12-15cm) you might want to try a larger coil for deeper objects. I'm thinking there's more gold there as well. But I'd happily settle for some of that hammered silver.

    Don't you hate when those darn Roman coins get in the way of your plans? Great finds as usual.

    On some of our Roman sites, 21 would be an average day, but for this field that is not a Site its a real surprise. About 5 was the norm from this field, which we had chalked up as an OK field but not a high priority one.
    (the buckle may look big in the photo but its only 30mm long)

    Most finds were in the 3-5" range, some deeper. The main issue is target seperation, with many holes having multiple targets. I'm clearing it first with my 11", should really use the 9" but as I clear most signals, the confused ones get sorted anway. The field is not ready yet for my 12 by 15" These group of fields take years to clear & we have only just started Thats why the Hawkers hate us (met one yesterday, asking questions) They have been doing this land for 20 years
