Was out for a few hours with my Equinox, here in the UK on a local farm permission....dug this bid heavy key up in the middle of a field.
It was a deep one, prob 10"+ easily.
Just wondering if anyone would know how old it is and what it would have been used to open?
Weird how the teeth of the key (thats what i call 'em lol) are facing forward.

Hopefully not too off-topic, but whilst idly Googling old keys I came across this site relating to Roman keys - probably already known to many of you, but since like me I guess some of us have a collection of unidentified Roman-looking small bits of bronze, it might be worth checking if any of those bits might be part of a key..http://romanlocks.com/Keys
