Thread: Morning Garden Dig...

    Morning Garden Dig...

    With the break in weather I decided it was time to dig a hole in a mates garden. Its been on my list of test pits for about a year.
    It was an old late medieval house & next door had a shared well, it also used to be a toll house at one point. However, its the Roman layers I'm interested in, as it's within the old Roman Walled Town.
    Most holes I dig have Victorian mixed up with Roman in the top layers but this one only had Victorian. The next layer 50cm-100cm were Medieval & then I hit the water table, so game over. No idea if the Roman layers were deeper, but I suspect it was too boggy back then.

    I then detected for 15 minutes on the grass & got;
    1 Button (Found the other with eyes only in the hole)
    £2.04p
    1961 Halfcrown
    1736 Farthing (Gave to the owners as the best find)
    Victorian Suspender Buckle (Found in hole)

    Medieval Pot Shards, Animal Bones & Teeth were found at 50-100cm.

    Final picture, my filled in hole.

    Total time spent 1 hour 45 mins.

    I agree with RTW lol. A lot of digging for some great finds and a very nice job of making it look like nobody was there.

    looked like a surgeon was at work there! very impressive in so many ways plus you have kept the owners very happy in both the find and how well you kept it clean. I don't think that would be possible in the soil around my parts but holy cow! A very proper dig and well done with awesome results. very cool too!
