T2 on the Saxon…

Another hot day out with the T2…

T2 setup – 88 – 5 – 2+

IMG_0024 (2)Before i begin, a word from the sponsor, my son gave me this polished fossil, one of the nicest ive seen, normally they are over polished and don’t look right, this one has been done perfect… but i despair for his sanity playing his computer games all-day, then he does this ! this is a stunning little gift… Thank you OJ…

Anyway back to the plot, i set James up for the off, for those that are confused, James has another name most people know him by, and that’s “Blech Van-Hengst” i must admit he is acting a bit strange with his camp stance for the camera, but then again… Once James was underway, i moved over to another field, to start my “daily self isolating field exercising stroll” on this blazing hot day, nice flat fields, to play on, and an early hammered coin, a rather splendid Anglo Saxon coin of  Æthelred II (Old English: Æþelræd, pronounced [æðelræːd]; c. 966 – 23 April 1016), known as the Unready, who was King of the English from 978 to 1013 and again from 1014 until his death. His epithet does not derive from the modern word “unready“, but rather from the Old English unræd meaning “poorly advised”; it is a pun on his name, which means “well advised”… i still need to fully ID the coin, as to the  Moneyer and the mint…

i think James had the worst field, although saying that mine was quiet for the first 30 minutes… a few more coppers, pre-decimal mainly, another hammered coin although only a partial one, usual field dross, no large iron, i will be coming back on this field later with the Teknetics 15″ coil…











This Artefact is Roman, although im not sure what, i have seen these before…
