    2020 in Review Roman, Medieval and Much More

    I had a great 2020 and despite all the lockdowns I still managed a few good outings.
    With this being my first full year in Europe I am very happy with the quality of some of my finds. I'm still kinda stuck in the post-medieval era for the most part but a few lucky digs have been able to push back the dates a little bit.
    I hope you enjoy looking at my highlights.

    I apologize in advance for the long post.

    First, we have to look at the coins (all of these pictured here date from the late 1600's-1899.)

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Looks like a good year.

    Spec Buckles like that are tough to pin a date on, could easily be 16th C. Most of the average size ones like that one went on a line up each leather boot. The more buckles you had, the more money.

    The Roman Fibula (Brooches), can't bee far away.....
