    Return to Castle field (CELTIC BROOCH)

    Before Christmas I did a post entitled Medieval finds from the Castle field, today we had arranged to go on a club dig but we had to drive past the Castle field on the way, As we approached the field we noticed the remaining crop had been removed so we decided if the club dig was no good we could drop back on the Castle field and that's what we did. It was a bit hard going the tractor had left big ruts, my fist decent find was a small roman bronze not quite sure of ID but I think it might be Constantine111 could not get a good picture of this will post a better one later, I worked my way down to the bottom of the field were I made my best find for a long time dating from the Iron age of Britton a Celtic Dragonesque Brooch this is the first piece from this era for me ,unfortunately the bottom of the Brooch and pin are missing but it is still a very rare find.

    Very nice! Celtic is on my list, no Celtic in 19 years of detecting and I have walked the ground they did. HH, Mike

    Beautiful find. :P
    Det vi vet er så uendelig lite mot det som har hendt. Arkeologen er som den som går langs en strand og finner småtterier, skyllet i land fra et forsvunnet skib. Men selve skibet som gikk i dypet med menneskene får han aldri se.

    I have seen these Brooches before and they have come from land heavily occupied by the Romans as was the area this one came from.

    Brilliant find, we do not find these brooches so often in Germany. The roman coin is of Valens (364-378 AD), the reverse type should read SECURITAS REIPUBLICAE (as it is the most common reverse type of this emperor). Really nice finds!!

    I'm wondering from the picture, is the roman silver plated? I can see its Valens but the letters look like a contemporary fake.

    As you pointed out a very rare find even in that condition still worth close to £100 ($200). I have had the odd bit of Celtic but not even a fraction of this desirable brooch.

    A VERY GOOD DAY

    If its silver plated then its a Roman fake. These are rare & more interesting than the real thing

    Could be a double bonus day, if its not silver it just has poor lettering
