Today we took my little seal into the FLO, as it’s classed as treasure, so we had a few hours to kill after so went swinging.

Himself took himself off to his “Roman Corner’ he found another 5. I went to the top end of this field which has in the past been quiet, but luck was smiling on me and I found 2 hammered, and this lovely chunky piece of pot 😆 xx

Got a lovely complete crotal bell, complete with its ringer, 2 musket balls, 2 lead weights, some bits, part of a patterned plate (bell metal) and lead disk and some buttons, 1 yet to be I’ded hammered, 1 Elizabeth 1st, and a pre dec think 1903.

Edit. Hammered Ids…
Elizabeth 1st half groat mint mark A 1582-4 and Edward 1st 1272-1307. Possibly a penny ..🤔

Very lucky with the weather today, frosty but sunny, heavy rain forecast for the weekend, so doubt we will get out 😞 xx

Usual scenic pics, the wall is the old wall surrounding the old deer park, beyond the wall is the racecourse field…!

If we put it into some type of perspective Bill

From Julius Caesar's first landing on the shoreline of England in 55BC to the famous 'Look to your own defences' letter of AD410, the Romans played an important part in British history for over 400 years.

Translate this over to the USA history-From when the Mayflower landed to now is the same amount of time in history.
Kind of humbling when I think about the history that is in Britain soils.

We're kind of 1600 yrs behind them for finds. (minus the native)
Yes, & some of the Celtic (Iron Age) tribes had trading links for some time before that.

Another interesting thing we have found, is in the 2 fields we have found majority of Roman Coins, in one we have found 83 in the other over 100. Where as the hammered we find in most fields but only a couple here and there.

We have actually found more Romans than hammered overall. Despite the fact they were here for a shorter period of time. Xx
