I not got me a rabbit! But an arm embowed!

Post by Oxgirl36 » Mon May 07, 2018 11:51 am

Yesterday I managed to garner enough favour to nip out for a couple of hours after we got back from a family day out. It was just starting to cool down by 5pm so I headed for the Roman strip again, only this time I took a bit more notice of the track going to the permission.

In the same area of the track where the jetton was found on Friday I got my first signal. It was a surface find, a little Roman coin. Yup and right next to where the little villa is supposed to have been.

This was soon followed by a second signal about a meter away. Skipping a thousand years I found an annular buckle/ brooch pin that had obviously broken on the loop. The ring section that it belonged to was sadly no where to be seen. Shame as it would have been a good size too.

Image

Another meter or so away was another good signal around 69 and solid on the display. I though first of all it was just a piece of lead but it’s not. It’s a copper or brass cast item of a rabbit with a top hat and behind a wall. Is it a political satire thing? You can even see his whiskers but his nose has had a bash. Think it’s broken where the wall ends on the right.

Image

Image

Deciding the leave the rest of the track for another day when there really is nothing else left to do I then moved to the Roman strip. The first signal was this bit of broken bronze. It’s got 3 break points. Probably nothing but just in case.

Image
Image


And then just one more coin followed by lots and lots of lead.

Image

Image

And I got home before my dinner went in the dog - result!

I.e turreted wall with armoured arm that would have held a dagger or somesuch
Pointy thing?

Are you sure that's a rabbit? I mean, aren't they supposed to be pulled from a top hat rather than wear one?

You've been on the gin again, innit? ;) :D

Edited to add the bit which somehow didn't end up in this reply which said great writeup and interesting set of finds for a couple of hours. Sorry about that, but I've been on the gin, innit?

Another thing- to my eyes-
it looks like it’s been decorated with colour?
Or not.

Yes I saw this one but the arm is coming from the side of the tower, not the centre, so I suspect there may have been something else on the other side. Maybe a mirror image of this one?

Guess i’ll probably never know :(
