Thread: Low Yield Roman Site - Day 2 - 3 Hammered, Roman Silver!

« Prev Thread | Next Thread »
  1. #1

    Low Yield Roman Site - Day 2 - 3 Hammered, Roman Silver!

    We spent about 4 hours gridding the last area of the Site, so its now all covered. As it happened the broken Roman silver was right on the edge of the site & we nearly stopped gridding before we covered it!
    I got the best hammered of the day (I actually got all 3) whilst OTWBTTC & Cru'dad got the stunning Roman Key! We have now discovered a new area that needs gridding as we found the odd coin & artefact.

    5 Hours total;

    17 Roman Bronze Coins
    A mystery carved stone - Any ideas?
    Roman Fibula
    Bit of an 18th C Fob Seal
    Roman Key (new variant we need)
    Roman Silver Denarius of Hadrian (Cru'dads find)
    Charles I Halfgroat
    2 Hammered Pennies of Ed I, best one being my FIRST Penny of the Lincoln Mint.

    Great finds for a 'low yield' site! Three silver and a beautiful key make it a fantastic day. No help with the stone....
    The right one of the good Bronzes? Who's that?

    Another nice hunt, congrats. I see the stone as a scraping tool. Tanning leather? Kind of small though.

    The hammered coins came from 3 different fields. The site is spit in half by 2 fields & we tried another one close to a Church before we wandered back to the car & fluked out the Roman Key in the middle of no-where!
    It's a barbarous imitation of a 2 Soldier 1 Standard reverse.
