So many of the Artefacts that are found or has been found are just parts of something much bigger, and so to gain an understanding of what “has been found” it is always relevant to a much bigger picture…IMG_8027 (2)
One of the most problematic things, any metal detectorist, archaeologist, or anyone who digs up an Artefact, or has found an item, that they are unsure off, it is how best to describe what they have found, this is where many people fail, especially someone new to the hobby of Metal Detecting, and this is where an item, is then either discarded or put into a box of “don’t knows” it’s these items that need to be addressed as a greater proportion of them are more important then they look, this is where the forums IMG_8029 (2)and social media sites help, by simply posting a “photo & help to id please” could bring in the ID you need… why do these items need an ID ? quite simply, if you have found part of a Roman coin for example, then there is an good possibility that it might just turn out to be a Roman site, which then produces Artefacts from that era, on every turn of the seasons plough…which you can then look forward to maybe finding, an item from the Roman period next time you venture out on that field, as there is a good possibility that occasionally something might turn up, on each new seasons ploughing…
