Thread: The Track-way Site...

« Prev Thread | Next Thread »
  1. #1

    The Track-way Site...

    This early Saxon site is spread over a large area, mostly on 1 side of an old track-way that we think is Roman but might be earlier. Its within the Bronze Age landscape & we get a little from every period other than Iron Age. We also believe the site was left unused since the Saxon period but then later had a Georgian farmstead on it which is no longer there. So the buttons keep us busy.

    We only gridded for just over 3 hours;

    2 Lead Tokens
    Pewter Button with NYM, which I think is the North York Militia. (Another first)

    The upper checks look like double the size of the lower ones. Gives it a higher recall value. Would be cool to know who lost this.

    Not sure if you have read our technique but we only take seconds bending over & grabbing the targets (Buttons in this case). The point was more about it keeping our interest level up, otherwise we may not have bothered continuing to grid.
    (we never use our knees unless the hole is so deep we can't reach the bottom)
