The last options we have on this permission is several Game Strips/Bird Cover which was recently drilled with maize.
We started on the Game Strip (we had never gridded) that was on the Roman Gold field, it was about 1/2 acre a long the far edge over the high ground.
It took us 2 hours 20 mins to complete & the best find went to Cru'dad - near blank Shilling.
After lunch we were going to do a small strip that had never been done next to one we had covered before. It was smashed down & direct drilled, so nearly impossible to dig. Meaning Cru'dad had to start the nearby one whilst I got on with the hard digging on my own. I got the only Scrappy of the day & a Saxon Stirrup Terminal plus bits. Cru'dad got the hammered on his 4th run which is encouraging as we had done that area twice, so the deep plough had done its job again!
4.5 hrs (2 Game Covered completed, 3rd one started);

1 Scrappy
Crotal Bells
17th C Buckle
Saxon/Viking 10-11th C Stirrup Terminal - Doesn't look much but I study these & have never seen a horse hoof shaped Terminal before.8-)
Will III Worn Shilling
Hammered Sixpence of Lizzy I - 1579
