Back on the trashy grenade field from this week.
This time no shell was found, so it was a safer hunt than friday. We managed a loose grid about a fourth of the field and collected a pouch full of WWII brass.

Then my buddy was calling me over. I laughed because i thought he was joking with another driving band. He was almost shaking, holding the biggest iron age glass bracelet in his hand i've ever seen... Most are not half that wide. This beast was nearly 30mm wide before it lost one of the outer ribs. It dates to 450-50 BC.

Only one lead bullet, a type i don't had often before.

Close after the glass bracelet i eyeballed my find of the day. A late neolithic arrow tip, dating to 2500BC. I was nearly doing a happy dance because of the rarity of these points here. I mailed some pics to my stone artifact specialist and he came up with another surprise.
It travelled from Paris into a field Germany. It's related to Group Gord, Compiegne, Parisian basin.

When you least expect it? Nice point. The natives here traded flint. I talked to an Arkie. in South Dakota and they were finding flint from 600 miles away. Won't you trade flint for silver any day? Good luck Lu.

We accurately GPSed the bracelet part to go back after plough, hopefully more turns up. Most likely a grave good. I remember we talked about neolithic points and there rarity not long ago and now the Nornes spun a yarn...

Hi Tim! You can never expect points here and now i know they are out there. Flint was traded very far in stone age. Often prefabbed tools. Here my specialist said this point wasn't traded, he found a few of this type in context with artefacts coming from what's now France. Although the first farming people they seem to be high mobile in travelling.

We have very good flint here, known for near industrial mining in neolithic times. Also traded over hundreds of miles to south Germany and this point is made from french flint.... :laughing9: It's darker, almost black, ours is honey coloured and grey/brown.
