    KILLER DAY - ROMAN SILVER &...

    Today we were out on 4 different fields for 6 hours (12 man hours), the first 2 targets were a bust, the second two were known sites (where Dad got the Knife handle etc..)

    We started the 3rd field by the Church (previously produced Roman-Medieval) at the opposite end to the Church & my plan was to zig-zag over where I thought an old footpath used to lead to the Church, & hopefully pick up a medieval item/coin. When I got to the middle of the field I lucked into my best find in a long time, I instantly recognized it from a couple of books I have, but always thought it an impossible find;
    Roman Legionaries Helmet Handle with two opposed Dolphins (1 is bust)
    Only 1 similar recorded on the UKDFD & 1 on the PAS:
    http://www.ukdfd.co.uk/ukdfddata/sho...t=3677&cat=all
    http://finds.org.uk/database/artefacts/record/id/388461
    UPDATE: these are now thought to be box or furniture handles.


    After gridding the area where it came from with no further finds & detecting close to the Church with little finds other than a couple of nice Buckles & a cracking Jetton, we decided to move to a nearby field (where Dad had his Handle).
    In the last hour on this field & for a little time on the previous field we were joined by Land-Mag our 3rd team member, & we began to get a few Roman Bronzes & some interesting pottery. Now the funny part, I let out my rallying cry 'come-on the Roman Silver' & I (with my 2 witnesses) only detected another 20yards on the same run & got one of the nicest Roman Silvers in a long while Now this is where Jimmy-UK enters stage left, & I know what your thinking Jimmy - Its a Juilian II circa AD360 What are the odds... (Also I know what Hammereds thinking about the Bell Dad got)
    What an end to the day, after several months without a Roman Silver & on land which we have never had one from, the Crusader call gets the goods
    Dad also dug our first Roman Iron Spearhead.

    Dad did, it's the style I thought you may have found before I saw yours. This one is slightly more common than yours.
    But still in great nick & one of our better examples
