The first visit was cut short but we still managed to recover a couple of hammered coins and medieval artefacts.
One of the coins was a continental penny of Gui de Dampierre AD 1280 - 1305 and the other was a sixpence of Elizabeth I dated 1594 and minted at the Tower of London.
Images of these finds can be seen here.
The second visit consisted of the the full team taking part and had a bit of a slow start yet there were quite a few silver coins recovered, three being hammered.
After the lunch break we decided to persevere and we were glad we did as more medieval artefacts emerged and a total eleven hammered coins were found with four silver milled coins.
There were two large lead trade weights, one weighing a pound and the other weighing one quarter of a pound.
In fact, quite a few lead artefacts were recovered with four bag seals, a token and a lead pot mend with a piece of the pot still intact.
A nice pin that may be Saxon or Medieval came up too but is in the process of cleaning as this article is being written.
We look forward to returning to this field soon. At 24-acres we estimate that there is another two days worth of searching to complete it.
Meanwhile, there are some other interesting fields at the farm we want to survey after this one that may be interesting. We know that one of them has a possible Roman shrine in it, as well as a DMV.
