Rain Stopped Play....

Post by Allectus » Fri Aug 10, 2018 12:38 pm

....But not before a bit of early Saxon yellow! ::g

Bloody marvellous! I just started to get a few bites resulting in a few early bits before the heavy showers stopped play. X(

The Constantine II bronze was first up followed by the early Saxon brooch fragment. A Roman bronze ring bezel was then eclipsed by the Saxon gold filigree ring. ::g
