Lovely day with a nice dry surface to walk on - nice not to have those really sticky boots.
Started on the edge of Fan's Site going into no-mans land & it really lived up to it as we didn't even get a dribble of Roman finds extending from the known scatter. After just over 2.5 hrs we had a few buttons, a Lead Token, mini cannonball & a 17th C buckle (One I need). OTWBTTC we crossed the Metal Working site & spent some time trying to find a few things we had missed to round off the morning session to 3 hrs. This paid off, as we had 2 scrappies, Celtic Fibula, & Roman Fibula Catchplate.
Whilst researching the Lead Token, I was surprised to find a connection with Jamestown:
It's pretty rare that you can ID a Lead Token, not had this one before.

After lunch we gridded 3 hours on the big grid, which is now a very long way from the Metal Working Site, but we still managed 9 Roman Coins. Not sure what this is telling us yet. Maybe a route in or farming activities.:dontknow:(It doesn't look like typical settlement)
OTWBTTC Cru'dad got 1 more scrappy, taking us to 12 for the day.
Also got:
1st-2nd C AD Roman Sawfish Brooch
Jetton
Medieval Horse Harness Pendant
A nice Sev. Alex. Sestertius AD230

Amazing, as always, and well done! The sawfish brooch is, by far, my favorite of the finds. Just beautifu!

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

Not Jamestown Token as such, just found 26 there from the British people bringing them with them.
