As expected, the finds recovered were far less in comparison to the two previous surveys, especially the survey from the week earlier.
We think we now have a good idea as to where the bulk of activity and occupation exists on the field.
The Déus' had the 13 inch coils fitted and set to GMP "Fast", 18khz, "Full Tones", GB on "Tracking" and Manual.
There was a high degree of ferrous contamination in large patches of the search area. A small amount of Roman and medieval pottery as well as knapped flint shards were recovered.
The whole area has a large amount of flint scatter.
The most unusual find was that of a large lead spindle whorl, decorated with pellets on one side and radial lines on the other. This is indeed a very rare find for this survey site.
In contrast to last weeks large Trumpet fibula was a fragment of a very small trumpet brooch.
We are now feeling farily comfortable with the Full Tone setting as this gives a greater picture of what you are scanning. You still get the ferrous buzz at one end of the scale and the high tones at the other, but its the in-between tones that are new to the ear.
The images for the day can be seen here.
The quest now is to decide where to survey next week!
