2000 year old GOLD.
Went out today 17th Jan it was extremely cold but otherwise very bracing ,Decided to try the field that produced the Woad Grinder and the new type Roman Brooch from last week , but the 1st time a signal was received l realized the frost had made the ground so hard that it was impossible to dig !! So l almost called it a day. But as l had made the effort to travel several miles to the farm l decided on another approach , the adjoining field was still stubble from around six months ago and had quite a bit of weed growth and l thought it would be much easier , which proved to be the case, so l had about 3 hours or so on that. And am l glad l did..
This years 1st GOLD coin a beauty. and 4 days sooner into the year than last year. Hutch.

The body wants to go back in time, the heart lives for today and the mind thinks about the future.

That one's a BANNER find and an ancient work of art too!

Very cool, I have only had a plated one & Shaun7 nicked a solid gold one from under my nose
Its a great example, well defined.
You now worry me about the low lieing wheat crop I want to do & I know stubble & even snow helps but sounds like its going to be a bust this weekend. As I have no stubble options.
