The conditions were extremely dry and breezy which was much appreciated as this can be a very sticky field when wet!
We've visited this field 15 times since 2013 with some great results including at least 31 fibulae and fragments and lots of Roman coinage too.
Today's visit resulted in 42 Roman coins; mainly grots, 2 early fibulae, an assortment of bronze partifacts including a pair of tweezers and the obligatory hammered coin being recovered. Quite a few pieces of Roman pottery surfaced with one being a fragment of Samian Ware that had been drilled to be repaired with a bronze staple.
For a change, three combinations of machines and setting were used.
One machine had the 11" X35 coil powered by the GMP program and the other two machines had the 9" HF coils; one using GMP 15 KHz and the other using GMP 30 KHz.
It's the first time that 30 KHz has been used for a full days session and it handled the conditions really well. The signals were extra-ordinarily loud, even on the smallest of the Roman coins and, of course, the larger items were "Earschplittenloudenboomer" signals!
