    Scouting Good Intel...

    ...doesn't always get you what you hoped.
    Land-Mag had set us up with a great looking field (on paper). It had good crop-marks on it, which the Archies had thought were Iron Age & Roman. It was next to a brook & opposite a known Roman settlement. But when we got our boots on the ground & gridded the crop-marks they had very little sign of anything. Experience tells us that these were Bronze Age & Iron Age. So another good looking target off the list.
    We tried the field next door & then after lunch fell back to the possible Saxon site that Land-Mag & I had scouted. (Where I had the Medieval Lead Seal)
    6 hours produced;

    5 Scrappies
    3 Crotal Bells
    Large Roman Nail
    Roman Lead Steel-yard Weight
    Larges Spec. Buckle
    Roman Pin-Head
    17th C Spoon Top
    17th C Leather Mount
    OTWBTTC Cru'dad got a screaming signal 25 metres from the car in a trashy area. Turned out to be an 1851 Shilling. It's actually a pretty scarce date to collect & this one is better than my one in the collection. (the collection I buy, not find)
    "My Mate Paul, he collected Collections and wrote a memoir "Recollections of a collections collector " as far as i know it's still unpublished ........."
    "I had a friend once, he had a Cactus, same cactus sitting on his windowsill for 15 years , then one day someone gave him a second cactus then within 6 months he had to move to a bigger house so he had room for his collection, whereas a Woman with 3 cacti would say "that's probably enough Cacti for me "

    Nice finds. I'm pretty sure there was a 1850 shilling in there you missed.

    You and your Dad found a lot of thimbles and crotal bells on this hunt Cru, I don't see you post many of these 'modern' finds.
    I love this piece, can I assume the F.D. stands for 'Fire Department'?
