    Talking <<<ROMAN BRONZE BULL>>>

    Took another day off work to try some more Barley Fields. Cru'Dad had done some hunting yesterday (picture 1) & scouted out which fields are available. The first field I picked from the list, I knew had some cropmarks on but we had found very little in previous years, but worth another try.
    First Field (2 hrs) - Roman Bronze Bull, Tudor Buckle, 1 Roman Coin
    Second Field (1 hr & 15 mins) - Medieval Belt Mount, not much else
    Third Field (1 hr) - Tudor Book Clasp,Poor hammered coin, Spur, Great Northern Railway Button

    The Story:
    We arrived at the first field & I had a plan in my head as to where we would start gridding (over the cropmark). However, as soon as I walked into the field, I had an erge/feeling to try right in the middle of the field. Now although I don't like to leave anything to 'chance', I do always listern to my instincts. Therefore, I sent Cru'dad over to start plan 'A' & I peeled off. After less than 30 minutes of making my way over to the middle, & on my 4th dig, up popped the surprise Roman Bronze Bull (only missing a small 'loop' of the tail). I called Dad over, he GPSed it & we gridded that area with nothing else to show. A Roman or Celtic animal/person figure was in my top 5 Wish List for many years, but I kind of cheated & crossed it off when I got a Roman Mars Bust Knife Terminal. Now I can really cross it off.
    THERE ARE NONE RECORDED WITH THE PAS OR UKDFD DATABASE!
    What more can I say other than 'thank-you Lord' & this story was not bull.

    These are often associated with votive/ritual activity, they are near impossible to find, as they are mostly found on Roman Temple Sites. (most of which are protected by Law)
    This one is very odd, as it was not even on a Roman Site, but I have a feeling a Roman trackway ran through this field, so its a random loss.

    One sold here for $544 but I think the detailing on mine is better.
    Someone wants over $4000 for this one:
