Almost a summer day, had to strip off a few layers!
I have a feeling it will not be long before they drill this field with Spring Beans. (maybe this week)
Spend nearly 2 hours at the Fan's Site end & only got 1 scrappy (a surprising distance from the rest!), a 17th C Lead Cloth Seal, 17th C Button & bits...
OTWBTTC (rounding off our morning session to 2 hrs 15 mins) - Got 1 small scrappy & a Roman Ring Bezel that looks like it was badly cast or in a fire. Plus a Hob-Nail.

After lunch we did 3 hrs gridding at the other end on the big grid & got:
4 Scrappies
Bit of a Roman Fibula
Tudor Button
Tudor Clothes Fastener
1911 Shilling
Hammered of Ed I
circa 1272.

OTWBTTC we spent 15 mins (taking us to 5.5 hrs) trying an Iron Age area where I got a 1st C AD Roman Brooch.

Yeap, more silver, mostly at the far ditch end.

We are nearly over most of the slightly curving lump feature & the Roman Coins seem to have stopped. But we will prove it on this next grid.

Tesoro compadre, which can find needles, but looking for something with a bigger coil/detects deeper, waterproof salt/fresh user friendly.

The hammered 1272 survived quite well Cru'...
You certainly earn your finds with the time put in.

Always a joy to see your recoveries!

They were drilling this field with Spring Wheat yesterday (so my guess was right). We still have a couple of weeks after drilling. But the clock is now ticking.
