We are now focused at one end of the biggest grid we have ever done. The Fan's Site end wasn't producing enough & time is against us.
It was payback time after our last good hunt, no silvers & our first time for ages without a Scrappy.
However, after 5 hours hunting we still did ok:

French Jetton
Pewter Whilst
Broken Georgian Cannon
Spec Buckle
Small Medieval Buckle
Barrel shaped Medieval Leather Mount
Broken up eagle (probably late 18th C clock mount) No body or head yet
Lead Pot Mend with Finger/thumb Print - A least Medieval, might be Roman (no way of telling without a pot shard present)
Top half of a Roman Nail Cleaner
3 Iron Age (Celtic) Fibula - not bad for 1 day & shows we still have a chance

Love your recoveries
You do amazing research and what a exciting sight it must be for you to find all that history

Three iron age fibula sounds really like a chance.
How the hell did you get a fingerprint into lead? Ouch.....
It's all in the timing....
