Can’t wait for the next instalment, better than any recent write up I’ve read in the detecting magazines. Look forward to seeing the pot ful when you find it. Don’t forget some lovely clod shots.

Some one once told me that they are often hoard coins, and he right he was hey. 😀

The story is one for "The Searcher" ... and should earn you more than the value of the finds... VWD!!!

"So next steps.... Advice please.... We are planning to hire/purchase a 'hoard hunting machine' or surveying equipment in hope of giving some insight as to whether or not something else lies below. Another option is we scrape back the surface (from flos advice) so fingers crossed the landowner is up for it. Either way, I cannot wait... It has been absolutely fantastic to have gone through this... it really is the stuff of dreams! "

Has the farmer got a machine with a ditching bucket you/he can use? Scrape 6" or so at a time, thoroughly check the new depth & also the spoil. ::g

Be lucky ::g

Thanks so much for all your comments and kind words!

Clod shots and pictures of all together should be on here in the next couple of days - the joys of country living and appalling internet.

We'll be back on site this weekend - cannot wait!
