    Roman Metal Working Site - 55 Bronzes & 1 Roman SILVER +++.....

    Pretty windy with a number of small showers that included some hail, so I felt a little wind burn today, but nothing to put us off gridding 6 hours.
    We are amazed at how much stuff is left, we gridded this area after the last deep plough & it's only had a 3 inch turn. However, it is drilled flat & wet underneath & we are picking up all the deep scratchy signals.
    Now the March Recording Count is complete we have smashed our best ever March Roman Bronze Count - 226 Coins. Previous best 98!

    55 Roman Bronze Coins (2 Good ones, back to the usual ratio!)
    RARE Roman Military Spur
    Roman Ring Bezel
    Roman Tweezers
    Roman Bracelet bit
    Roman Conical Mount (Cavalry?)
    Roman Strap-End (broken in half)
    2 Roman Brooches
    Roman Balancing Arm for a Scale (bit of)
    1/2 a Roman Bead
    Celtic Brooch
    Roman Siliqua of Honorius circa AD400.

    Both the bronze coins and the silver coin look terrific. How many Roman silvers have you dug over the years? Just curious?

    @Robfinds:
    Understand your view and concerns but they are misdirected. Please consider the following:

    I am not taking part in any meetings with other people when out and the only 2 people involved in this (now once a week) outdoor exercise are myself and Cru’dad.
    Outside that I am working from Home and stay in the house – as does Cru’dad. Except when we get food shopping or medicines.
    We do not have nor can give each other COVID 19 unless some-one else gives it to us.
    I also medically need to maintain a certain amount of Vitamin D which is best achieved outdoors. The SI’s do not ban Metal Detecting but meeting people groups.
    Government have allowed us to exercise outdoors each day keeping 2 metres away from people and not to meet with more than 1 person when out.
    The government has suggested people even take up hobbies so as to promote good mental health and to keep physically fit..
    Cru’Dad and myself are interpreting plus applying all aspects of the Statutory Instruments 2020 No 350 as required in Law and our Civil rights.
    Our activity is on land where the General Public do not go, or even know about, except for an odd local dog walker. Even then some ¼ mile away!
    Our presence is helping stop birds attacking the crops which is considered an essential need by our farmers to protect the food supplies.
    Travel is restricted to our local area and is not banned by the Statutory Instruments. We do not use Public transport in any way.
    Of course, if restrictions increase or change they will be followed too. Finally, a PM could have got you the same answers before you fired off inappropriately.

    UPDATE from my Roman Military Expert:

    ''Wow, congratulations, nice one. It's a military spur from the late Roman period. e.g. PAS YORYM-CCFC8E. Plenty are undecorated so yours I guess would be high status.''

    No it is not illegal or has it been banned. You are well with in your rights to do your hobby as long as you follow the rules about distance and crowds. That being said what a great hunt.
    Unfortunately my state has ordered emergency orders to stay at home.........
    Please read our rules and enjoy the site. TreasureNet.com Rules

    All finds posted by me are from private property with landowner permission.
