Thread: CELTIC GOLD, ROMAN SILVER, & MEDIEVAL SILVER!!!!!

« Prev Thread | Next Thread »

    Cool CELTIC GOLD, ROMAN SILVER, & MEDIEVAL SILVER!!!!!

    This could not of worked out any better! It rained on Saturday & it was a lovely windy cool day for what is our LAST CHANCE to detect this field before harvest. Conditions were perfect & something happened that has never happened to me. We normally call a early silver in the hunt 'the kiss of death'. Well I dug a Celtic Gold on my 'first dig', I couldn't believe how deep it was, over 8 inches & I was thinking deep shotgun shell.
    This must be the end of my personal mega roll over the last 4 hunts, my highlights have been;
    3 Roman Silver, Hammered, Celtic Gold, Celtic Silver, Celtic Bronze!

    We finished gridding the edge of the site in 5 hours 15 minutes;

    Boar's tooth
    Livery Button
    17th C Token
    11 Roman Bronze Coins
    3 Roman Fibula (Brooches) - One type that I need, the upper part of a 1st C AD Roman Brooch of the 'Lion Bow Derivative'
    Ring Bezel
    Roman Hair-pin
    Celtic La Tene III Brooch
    Hammered Penny of Ed I, Bristol Mint (Only our 2nd of this mint, this being the better one)
    Roman Silver Siliqua of Honorius (Our last Emperor to rule Britain)
    GOLD Celtic Qter Stater of Cunobelin circa AD 15.

    Big congrats to you Cru. You just never cease to amaze.

    They really are small, especially when seen against that coin.

    Good show, cheers!

    It took 2 other trips to grid to this point, & it was towards the edge of the main scatter. My strategy worked well this time, as I wanted to prove the limits of that edge. We were working at 90 degrees to our normal hunting pattern for this field, so as not to do very long runs of nothing.

    This is the only field we know where we felt we had a chance. (now our 4th Gold from this field) In fact this morning I was so confident that I was already thinking of the Tnet title....lol
    Doesn't normally work out though, as we had covered the whole site in about 7 days after a deep plough & got none. It wasn't until conditions improved with the drilled beans that we stood a better chance.

    Cheers. Cru'dad hadn't even started detecting when I popped that gold out the ground. I walked over to him to do the reveal, as it was caked wet sticky mud.

    Those golden ponies are FANTASTIC treasure. I love them. Certainly one of the very best things a MDer could ever hope to find.
    Can only imagine how they made the dies, and the other tools used to make them way back then.

    Complete initials under the horse would be CVNO for Cunobelin, the Celtic king
    Full initials on the reverse would be CA-MV for Camulodunum; Colchester, England today.
    Cru, as usual, an assortment of fantastic finds
