And it did so today in the form of an iron age brooch.
I had 4 metal signals in two hours! 2 pieces of lead, bit of a broken buckle and this one.
Its a first for me and I am thinking its a la tene type ? I assume its BC but I am hopeful one of the experts here can give a precise ID on this.
I think only the catchplate is missing but I am amazed that much of it is complete as this field has had the scuff treatment for many years and most items found are usually in 'bits'
Thanks for looking and good luck everyone who is out this weekend.
