Today on the farm.
In the picture it shows what must be one of my biggest buckles I have ever found. beside that is I think a lead palm guard. There is a musket ball, a cartwheel penny, a couple of farthings, and a couple of other bits.
The diamond shaped object seems to have a design on and must have looked good in its day. The three-pronged thing I haven't a clue but looks like it was something one time.
It was my Nephew that stole the limelight with his Deus. I was a fair distance from him and could see him on his knees digging away, he seemed to be at it for ages, I thought to myself I bet its a large lump of deep iron...then I hears him call me. I knew then he had found something good. I hurried to him and still on his knees he held up what he had just dug... a bronze age palstave axe head. I wasn't sure what it was but he knew and he confirmed it by getting the internet up on his phone. It could be an early bronze age one dated around 1500 - 1300 BC..... 'ell that's some age. It is a beauty and a joy to see.
The picture shows it on top of the hole with his pinpointer well in the hole, it was a foot deep easy. To think he was the first one to touch it after someone lost it over 3,000 years ago. Unbelievable, this is what makes metal detecting so rewarding.
