    Failed Oil-Seed Rape - Day 2 - CELTIC GOLD & even more Fibulatastic...

    On Monday I felt a Celtic gold coming after a few good signs & then when Cru'dad got the silver towards the end of the hunt, I knew we stood a better chance. So yesterday I booked today off as holiday, stating to my work colleague that I would find a Celtic Gold today. Not something I normally throw about, so I'm very happy with the result of nearly 6 hours gridding a huge area.
    We only targeted 1 Celtic Gold for the year, so job done with a really good looking RARE type that I need.


    2 Scrappies
    Medieval Leather Mount (Beast head)
    6 mostly broken 1st C AD Fibula
    3 Celtic Fibula
    RARE - Tasciovanus Hidden Faces Gold Stater, circa 20BC.
    Here is some interesting speculation about the bull head (Bucranium) above the horse:
    ''The bucranium on this superb gold stater indicates that Tasciovanos was also aware of the sacral nature of his kingship and, like Augustus, probably performed some priestly duties within the Druid system, including perhaps the ritual sacrifice of bulls, as graphically illustrated by a bronze unit (ABC 2972) of his son Cunobelinus.''

    We have covered most of where we think the Celtic site is, however we will keep gridding out-wards next time.

    Thankfully it's with the landowner who we have already given 2 Celtic Gold coins to. Therefore when we next met & show them, it will be OK. We will give them extra finds & look for another great find to even it out.
