    Gold Coin Sceat Hunt Gone Wrong - CELTIC GOLD

    Today we returned to the Saxon Site in the hope of a Sceat. Sadly it was still an ankle breaker & after 2 hours 15 minutes we gave up with just a Saxon Pin, Saxon Strap-end & Medieval Horse Pendant.
    I then challenged Cru'dad to pick a field on the way home & he chose a site that he has mentioned a couple of times & I've not been keen. It's a low yield Roman Site that has had less than 30 bronzes & no silver. However, it was his pick & at least it had been deep ploughed & rolled.(2 hour hunt)
    So as it happens it was totally the right call with a Roman Silver Pin (Treasure) & CELTIC GOLD!!! (My second this year)

    12 Roman Coins
    2 Tudor Buttons
    Medieval Horse Harness Pendant (Type I need)
    Saxon Pin (near complete)
    Saxon Strap-end
    Roman Bronze Pin
    Roman SILVER Pin
    Romano-Celtic Ring (shame it's broke) We have had this in kids size, but this is daddies...
    Celtic Gold Stater of Cunobelin circa 10-20AD.

    No hole needed, just a foot scrape - in the surfaces layer.

    When we volunteer on an Archie digs we give up all our finds. Unless it's on land that we have prior permission, & in these cases we hand in all the stuff from the trench, trench spoil, & close to the trench. (everything else we keep/split with the owners)
