Default Finds: From across the pond.

Finds from last week from one of my favourite fields.

It felt for ever for the crops to come out.

Field was in stubble but I'm hoping the farmer will plough it this year before reseeding it in a few weeks time, I live in hope.

My thanks to a FB group member for the ID on the Roman coin.

Thanks for looking.....Doug.

A big old buckle!


Old,not sure?


1st/2nd century part of a Roman brooch.


4th century Roman coin.


Pony club badge.........not Roman!


Roman coins and broken Roman brooches.


Constantius II dated AD 354-362 FEL TEMP REPARATIO.
Reverse type depicting soldier spearing barbarian who has fallen from a horse.

As always, very nice indeed, and i particularly like the coin...Do you have any pasture fields in the same area, and if so, do you find them as productive for the Roman stuff?

Edited to add that round item in the second pic looks like part of a brooch? That's assuming it's not lead....

Thank you Pete.

I have no fields that are pasture 100% of the time, even the dairy farms which are pasture will have at least 2 fields put into maize for winter feed for the cows.

So that means I can find Roman on any of the land that I go on.

Yes I'm thinking it may be a Victorian brooch, just see the pin.

Once again thank you for your kind replies.

Ground like concrete in most of the fields that I go in through lack of rain.

Have a chance to go out Sunday but as you say the ground is rock hard and the heat will make things pretty miserable pretty quick I think...
