4 hours in the rain

Post by alloverover » Sat Sep 22, 2018 10:34 pm

4 hours in the rain 4 not a lot, lovely to get out though :D


Thought I would go and try a patch that has thrown up a fair few iron age coins in the past, plenty of signals, 97 digs to be precise but the Celts wernt coming out to play today, nor was much else but you cant win every day and like I say, it was very enjoyable being out, even if it was peeing down, even if I was on stubble, even if there were no Celts :(( :((


:)) :)) ::g

I went out for 4 hours yesterday (because I saw the weather forecast and decided to do it in the dry and work today instead.) Got to say though that apart from not getting rained on my net result looks similar to yours....I think I stayed out so long because I thought something good would eventually repay my persistence. I don't know why I do that because it never does.
Anyway, I enjoyed it and tend to consider it 'legwork in the bank' and hopefully good stuff is coming. Because its the slowest season at this stage that I remember having for a long time...not a sniff of anything Celtic thus far and I usually get a few bits by this time.

Persistance does pay lb, ive had it on quite a few occasions when ive done just one more line or just one more hour or even just one more dig and something nice has come up, I agree with your legwork in the bank" though, its just a numbers game afterall and the more time you dig, be it yesterday or today or tommorow then the closer you are to a great find ……..its true,,,,isn't it ?? :D

I beeping well hope so AO....I've worn my legs down to stumps so far this season with nothing significant apart from a few testons to show for it. I think I should start taking a pedometer with me to see just how much legwork I am putting in the bank and how much it owes me! :D

Well done getting out in this rain Phil,
You still got a few good keepers there mate,
the rain will help the detector settle down & find them little bits, it's peeing down here & I'm stuck in home with the other half, her mum & her dog :( ;;z
Oh well will have a sort out of finds, pottery & fossils then.

looks like a good effort to me would love to have an area that had Celtic have dug plenty of other areas looking for a lot less and until it was hard to get any more than 3 or 4 targets in 4hrs worth of detecting.

Looking at the amount of targets you have dug in 4hrs that site might still have many Celtic finds left.

Good Luck ::g

You’ve certainly got a busy, busy site. Personally I’d rather be digging scrap than nothing. But you have got a nice buckle, it should clean up well ::g
What’s that at the left of the buckle, bottom pic ? Looks interesting.
