Thread: Low Yield Roman Site...

« Prev Thread | Next Thread »
  1. #1

    Low Yield Roman Site...

    We spent the first hour crossing off 2 target fields. The crop-marks we are guessing are Bronze Age, & not of interest to us, so time to move on.

    I had a plan & Cru'dad had a plan, as it happens I think he made the right strategy choice in the end. I wasn't that keen on this Roman Site, as it's a low yield site with our best coin count in any 1 year being 8 scrappies.
    He had scouted this field for 1 hour this week & got 1 scrappy & a Roman Spoon Bowl, pictured with today's finds;
    (4.5 hours)

    13 Roman Coins (1 good one of Allectus Galley type, found by Cru'dad OTWBTTC) Best year off this field
    Roman Spoon Bowl
    Post Medieval Spur Bit
    Tudor Book Mount

    Thanks for the continued support.
    I was most pleased with the Roman Galley coin as its now our best of its type for the collection.
    The fairly common hammered Lizzy will go to the farmer.

    I think you found so many great finds that you could open your own museum by now. Congrats Crusader.

    This smaller sized dandy button is the first of this design we have had, so it is another first for the massive button collection.

    Never said a low yield day, just a good day on a low yield site.
