Default Latest finds:England.

At last the harvest is in full swing although stubble fields can be a 'challenge' but it's good to get back into the swing...........

Finds over several weeks.

Hammered silver coin ID courtesy of a UK forum member.

Iron foot patten surface find by a friend.

Thanks for looking..........Doug.

Village house's are mid 1700's.


You can just see my car parked at the top of the field (middle) by the tree.


Barrel tap of post-medieval to modern date, AD1650-1850.


At this time I had no idea if coin or button!


Hammered silver coin it turned out to be.


Another silver coin.


Furniture fitting?


...and again.


Musket balls and possible part of a gun?


Coins, bottom 2 left Roman 2nd/4th century.


Various items, far right brooch?



Lead bag seals, possible for seeds?


William 3rd shilling AD1694-1702




Henry III (AD1216-72) short-cross, moneyer Ilger - London.




Foot 'patten' friends surface find, post medieval AD1650-1850


"The patten was intended to raise the feet from the ground in difficult walking conditions such as mud, to keep them dry and clean.

A mid 17th century to 18th century date is given though their use continued into the 19th century."


How they fitted to the boot/shoe.


...and finally....."The word patten probably derives from the Old French patte meaning hoof or paw."

Again great finds.

That gun part is definitely a trigger guard.

Not sure that the "patten" would keep your foot out of the mud.
I see it as to bottom of a stirrup. Possible?

The person who found it thought it was horse related until I informed him what the item was used for.

Fantastic finds as always Doug. Thanks for sharing! I'd be curious what was there before the 1700s village.

The village church which is a few hundred yards up the road the tower dates back to the 13th century with the rest of the building 15th century. The village consisted of really just one road with cottages on either side until a road was constructed around the village at a later date.
