    Roman Metal Working Site - Day 2 - CELTIC & ROMAN SILVER...

    Firstly I'm still in a T-shirt in November!
    We only had a short 2.5 hour window to grid this ankle breaker but it was well worth it. One of my best short hunts in awhile! Cru'Dad saved himself on the last run & contributed 1 Roman Coin to the haul.

    8 Roman Bronze Coins
    Roman Iron Locking Mechanism
    Roman Silver of Trajan AD108
    Roman Silver of Gallienus
    Roman Fibula with pin, but bent
    Celtic (Iron Age) Bracelet bit
    Roman Bronze Bead
    A copper-core of an imitation denarius of one of the Julia's - UPDATE; ''Just realised that the big lettering on that Bronze is actually Greek/Foreign and it is our first Roman Provincial coin. Those coins are thicker and heavier as AE bronzes. Just not sure which Province & Empress yet''
    Silver Unit of the Corieltavi tribe AD 45BC-10BC
    Tasciovanus Bronze Unit circa 20BC - A new & very rare type to my collection.

    I assume these are in the first picture. But as I am a baby to ancient Roman artifacts, could you please confirm this?
