Thread: Nearly Skunked...

« Prev Thread | Next Thread »
  1. #1

    Nearly Skunked...

    We had to stay close to home as we only had a 2.5 hrs detecting window. Cru'dad decided we should finish off the low yield Roman Site that he had been doing for the last 2 hunts.
    We thought we may get about 5 scrappies as we were coming off the edge of the Site. However we had none!
    If it wasn't for the unusual Lead Cloth Seal & Tudor Button, I would have called it a blank!

    Cru, glad you still managed to find a couple to put a smile on your face.

    These Tudor buttons are always nice to find, however they don't have a special name here. Did you ever found an openwork Tudor button?

    A Roman Bronze Coin with very little detail left, most UKers call them Grots.

    Agreed.
    What I forgot to say was the gale force winds & the mud that stuck to the boots & spade.
