Lever type object

Post by TheAndyA » Wed Sep 11, 2019 9:49 pm

Found yesterday in a new field, it rang in at 16 on the Equinox in Field 2 and it was only a couple of inches beneath the Stubble.

I've heard via second hand info, that there 'may' have been a Roman road nearby, but I can't confirm that. I did get a bit over excited when I dug the item up, thinking it might be something Roman rl; but I've calmed down and think it may quite possibly be something much younger?

Thanks for any info.

The patina doesn't indicate that it's too old. x;

Possibly one half of a dagger/sword cross-guard? The size & shape is about right. ::g

Thanks Easylife, yes I agree with you, I'd have expected it to be darker and more of a green patina . ::g

Now that's interesting, I hadn't considered that. Thanks Allectus. ::g

Or, if it is as modern as it looks, perhaps even off of a bayonet. The form really didn't change much over the centuries. ::g
