Another Saxon day today, with a Cnut penny, what looks like a London mint, short cross type on the same farm as my Alfred the Great must have been having a bit of a party.
When I got back, I dashed down to Cheltenham Town hall where they are filming the  Antiques Road show today, and took a few bits with me. Met Hilary Kay and Clive Stewart-Lockhart who were quite impressed with my finds, but they told me they couldn’t film them for the series because they have now been told not to promote metal detecting on the show. Someone must be turning the screws, on our hobby.   

I was shocked to discover a bronze alter object I posted on D.W recently is probably Chinese and dated between 100-1200 BC. Now that was £34.00 well spent on Ebay. Now when is the next Chinese auction being held, as they are paying big bucks for their heritage.  Grin

I know several other people who have taken finds along to the Antiques Road show only to be told the same. Apparently I was told there are a lot of comments on Twitter, after posey rings  have been shown in the past. The best thing to do is take an object along and say it belonged to your Great grandfather who was a Captain of a sailing vessel. As most people seem to have Captain’s as relatives, no one seems to work in the engine room anymore.  Grin
Although one of my relatives was a Captain, but you wouldn’t have wanted to meet him on a dark night.  Shocked
