A day on stubble!!

Got up early yesterday to travel over to one of my favourite farms. This farm has produced Celtic, Roman, Saxon and Medieval for me in the past, so I am always hopeful.

Arriving at the farm I met up with the farmer. He is a nice guy and took time to show me some fields. Most were stubble, however most of the hay had yet to be collected, leaving less of the field to detect on.

Within 30 minutes I had a lovely Henry II Cut half dating back to the 12th Century. From then on it was really hard work. Found a few more coins and a buckle but that was about it. The sun was out most of the day. Saw loads of nature whilst walking the fields. Frogs, Partridges, Eggs Grasshoppers - you name it, but sadly no more really nice finds to write home about.

Back out on Wednesday!!
