    DAY1 HUGE FIELD<<AMAZING FIND 3500 YEARS OLD>>UPDATED2

    My Dad joined the hunt today & used my back-up machine. We had to find somewhere new to do as I had finished the Sheep Field & Bullet Field. We drove to 1 farm but the grass was too long. So my dad suggested another field which had be eaten down flat by more sheep.

    Normally I choose the hunt area but being a huge field I let him choose. He decided we should do the furthest corner.

    As it got dark all we had were a few bits, the highlights being:

    Broken Tudor Clothes fastener.
    Medieval Coin Weight
    Very worn Lizy Hammered silver coin
    A roman Coin (not pictured as I left it around my dads to clean). Rang me and identified it as:
    AE4 of Honorius AD395-423 (Roman's left Britain in 410)
    Rev: Victory advancing left carrying trophy & dragging captive with Chi-Rho in field
    This is my latest Roman Bronze coin!

    On the way back to the car we kept our detectors on. Half way there I heard Dad get a good signal. After he dug it I said "Any good". No just a chisel thingy. So I carried on back to the car thinking it was iron rubbish. When we got there he was sorting out the rubbish & throwing it in the hedge. I looked over his shoulder and saw what I have only dreamed of finding. A Bronze Age Axe head. I picked it up & said "You know what this is". He said "well I wondered but it seemed to well made".

    Needs more research but it dates to about 1500BC thats 3500 years old!!!!

    Here is a similar type in a museum:

    you aren't even kiddin'!!!!! I would have lost consiousness, boy it's gonna be tough showin' up your old man now !!!
    I noticed that no-one really utilizes all the signature space provided, so I figured to be REALLY original I would make up the longest signature that I could and probably just leave it as one big run on sentence because all that punctuation just takes up way too much space-HH.

    Awesome finds!!! That axe head is about as old as it gets and it is in very nice condition considering it could be as old as 4000 years. Bronze Age axe head is on my list, I did get lucky last year with a Bronze Age bronze bar used for trade. Thanks for the post and pictures! HH, Mike

    What a rare find, WOOOHOOOO for you and your father! Those last minute finds always seem to be the best.
    You two have a reason to celebrate.
    When you feel down because you didnít
    get what you want, just sit tight and
    be happy, because God is thinking of
    something better to give you.

    It was on my wish list but unlike the other items on my list I thought it impossible. Although my dad found it only 3-4inches deep (Previously ploughed field), he lets me keep all that he finds (when he detects with me) . He never started detecting until I started finding good stuff.

    Can't wait to show the farmer.

    Nice finds, and the axe head is excellent. Certainly is small, isn't it. Wonder what they chopped with something that size? Anyhow, good thing you checked your dad's stuff before you chucked it. Do you always toss your junk in the hedgerows?
