    Split-Site West - Scouting Missions...

    I've just named this Site based on a modern ditch that cuts this Roman Site into 2 pieces; 1 roughly 30% & the other 70%. The 70% was on another landowners field, so Land-Mag did his magic & got us permission. We still have a small area to finish on Split-Site East but that can wait.
    The conditions are far from perfect; with Oil-Seed Rape stalks & volunteers growing up thick in places. However, this makes it easier to walk on with my boots actually coming off cleaner than they started.
    The last 2 outings were about assessing the size & shape of the Site, so that it can inform our grid pattern tomorrow.
    Cru'dad did a solo Friday hunt for 2 & a bit hours getting;
    11 Scrappies
    Roman Steelyard Weight
    Roman Ring Bezel
    Roman Leather Mount

    I did 2.5 hours with Land-Mag today & I wanted to check past the outer edges that Cru'dad had defined. I got;
    6 scrappies
    1931 Sixpence

    Land-Mag (2 hours) Not pictured here:
    7 Roman Coins
    Roman Oval Plate Brooch
    Iron Age (Celtic) Brooch

    Tomorrow the real work begins

    Yeap, he had a Hadrian Sestertius (our oldest Roman from the Site) & the Iron Age Brooch is a good sign on top of my Bronze Unit from Split-Site East.

    Very nice!



    8 Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it?
    9 And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!’ - Luke 15:8-9
