It took us 6 hours gridding to complete to whole of this new Roman Site. Unfortunately the Roman coin scatter died off quicker than we expected, but you can only find what is there & what is in range & that's now a wrap for this target.

11 Roman Bronze Coins
2 Medieval Buckles
1st-2nd C AD Roman Trumpet Brooch
Roman Ring Bezel
Roman Steel-yard Weight
Hammered - Italian Soldino
Edward III Groat 1351-52 (heavily clipped & no-where as nice as Cru'dad's recent Groat but I'm please with it)
Broken Roman Denarius - hard to ID but a boy Emperor

I got all 3 silvers again, plus the brooch & ring bit.:thumbsup:

Nice work, I do love the medieval groats!

I’d say that rather than a boy emperor on that denarius you have an empress (or emperor‘s sister/wife/mother etc).

I can see a bun at the back of the hair and the hair in rows fits better for a Roman lady too.
Only had a quick search but Lucilla looks close.

Good spot, not that sure yet, but Cru'dad is still researching & will add this to the possibilities.

A new site is always great. Looks a bit like our sites. Not that loaded with coins but still a Denarius to find... Funny is that steelyard weight. I was talking to my buddy on the Strap End site yesterday that we didn't had a steelyard weight for at least one year...
You did pretty well! A site with very little buttons makes every signal a good chance for good stuff!

Interesting history of Caracalla, if I found the correct one, co ruled with his brother after their father died, he then ordered the Praetorian guards to have his brother killed...
