One of our permissions has recorded over 50" of rain this year whereas there would normally be about 22" of rainfall normally to date.
The small river that runs through the farm was measuring 3.2 tonnes of water flowing per second!
The farm has just over 1200-acres and there has been no movement of farm machinery for the past 10 weeks!
Anyway, back to today's outing to a permission we've not been to for well over 30 months.
Expectations were quite high as we've recovered some lovely artefacts here. Unfortunately, those expectations were too high as we only found ONE grotty Roman coin which, for a site like this, is poor. This goes to show that there is only a finite amount of finds in any particular field or permission.
However, we did find a couple of nice items, one being a fine example of a coin of Henry VII Minted at Canterbury.
Images of the days finds can be seen here.
