    The experts think female, but I'm not sure if that comes with proof from a grave good or just speculation. They were super rare until detectorist found them out of context in ploughed fields.

    That's why detecting will never get boring, we could do it 50 years each & still see finds that will make ours look like junk.

    That is a great find. If i had found it i would do a belly dancing from the joy. Coins are great but this is personal, it belonged to someone.
    Banner for sure.

    Cru this is probably my second favorite find of yours. The gold coins are amazing but these early personal relics are incredible. The tile with the paw print on it is by far my favorite and will be hard to top for this guy. I'm guessing 98% of others will disagree with me but that find has always stuck with me as being your best

    I like what you're saying, but I'm pretty sure you mean Westfront & not me.

    You're right it was West. I just went back and found it. Have you ever found a tile with any kind of print?
