This is the field that the landowner asked us to search for a gold earring that was lost by one of the shooters. The lady that lost it was a very high ranking official in UNESCO. We did find it by the way :)
The weather wasn't too bad and the field was drilled with wheat.
It was looking good when fragments of Medieval pottery started to show.
A cut-half was the first Medieval artefact to see the light of day with a cut-quarter following as well as a nice small buckle.
Oddly enough, we ended up at the other end of the field that I suggested we search and on the return leg of the journey a signal was heard. It was another quite shallow signal, about 4-inches deep and when extracted the finders heart skipped a beat for a nano second. The finder said "Jeeps! I thought it was a piece of a gold coin". Now, thinking it was a piece of gold foil, brushing away a little of the soil revealed latin embossed wording around the circumference. Indeed, it was a gold hammered coin!
We carried on with the survey until the heavens openedand boy, did the sky open! Within 3-minutes we were soaked.
We called in at the landowners farmhouse to show them the first gold coin we'd ever found there since detecting at the estate in 2016.
After tea and biscuits we bid our farewell's and made the journey home.
