I found this today on a new permission and it was from what is now a grass Paddock. The land is up on the hills and the soil is quite sandy and there's a lot of stones under the earth.

I was using the Equinox in Field 2 and this gave a 19 - 21 signal. The item for 4 or 5 inches deep .

After detecting and then chatting with the land owner, I was told that some time ago a de-stonening machine had been over the land. I wish I'd known that sooner.

The 'thing' has a fair bit of weight to it. There used to be a Roman settlement around 1/2 a mile away (I'm not suggesting that this is Roman, but thought it worth mentioning). The only other finds of note from the day are a George II Farthing from an adjoining field and what may be a Medieval - Post Medieval Dress Hook.

Thanks for having a look. ::g
