Dad & I spent the morning exploring a new Pasture Field. It was ridge & furrow but had not been plough in living memory. Dad dug a Victorian plough bit, so we knew it was ploughed over 100 years ago! My best find was a 1690-1720 Buckle, so the was some hope.
After lunch we detected another adjecent pasture field that had been plough, but that seemed to have less signs than the other one. Therefore, I decided to cross over into the 'Buckle Field' for awhile. I went over the noisy productive area but as we had gridded it already, I hit it from a different angle. After about an hour I had most of the finds listed below;

Tudor Spectacle Buckle
Tudor Clothes Fastener
Saxon Brooch Piece
2 Hammered
895-915 Viking Penny - St Edmund Memorial Type;
Even though the Vikings killed the Saxon King (Edmund), he became a Christian Martyr, & the Vikings who were beginning to convert decided to venerate him on this coin!
They named a City after where he was buried - 'Bury St Edmunds'
