That's top stuff. There's nothing quite like finding a hoard (of whatever period). It'll be very interesting when you go back - at least you know where to look this time Smiley

A few weeeks ago myself and deadlock met up for a few hours out. Initially we were going for a dig on deadlocks field. When we arrived we were a bit disapointed to see the farmer lime spreading. Not fancying a faceful of dust we discussed a plan b, as we were already kited up I suggested we go and have a go on one of my fields about 20 minutes away. I hadnt tryed this particular field though the adjacent ones had produced a few Georgian coppers and it did have a footpath running across it.
Walking from the car to the site through a bit of woodland we started detecting, the usual shottys and small calibre shell cases turned up and the odd predecimal copper not to bad so far as at least we were finding stuff.
 We finally got out of the wood onto the field, my first signal was another shotty a couple of buttons and assorted scrap ,Alun had about the same. After about 20 minutes i get a scratchy though dig me signal and as i took the first clod out , there looking up at me was a dull grey disc after a gentle brush off I saw I had a roman denari .ROMAN I shouted to Al and after I got his attention he sprinted across the field  to look at it.. After a good pat on the back and well done we continued searching. I decided to skirt the edge of the wood whilst Al made for the centre of the field. 5 minutes later I hear a great shout of joy and Als punching the air, hes got a silver as well, followed shortly by another whoop as he found a second.
 We then decided to concentrated searching the centre of the field and by the end of the session Al found another 2 and a couple of broken pieces whilst I had another 1.
I went back the next day and was able to find 3 more.
I phoned the farmer the next day and arranged to show him what we had found. I also explained that the coins had to be reported as they would be classed as potential treasure then explained the procedure
I then asked him about what he he done to the field in the recent past
Look forward to next instalment, great story well done guys Wink Wink

Thanks for the great comments guys,
The farmer was very interested and quite intrigued with the find  on his land
Yes we certainly will be updating the story as it happens,,,but after my experience with the treasure process, I wont be holding my breath, .
I am thinking of running a book on how much the valuation committee will value it at..........any suggestions ?  Grin Grin
The closest guess wins a day out on one of my fields

Nice finds Ian but please don't be offended by my guess of 140. Having said that there will now be something rare in among them pushing the amount up to 5000  Smiley. Let me know if I have won in about three years time when your case has been concluded. Grin

What's the chances of that. I find a HOARD and two weeks later a mile up the road another HOARD.  Shocked

Next trip out I found seven more and a Bronze Age Spear. The Grass is way to long now and the ball is in in the hands of the System. Unlike Ian I found the Hoard but am also the landowner so have no protocol but do know the History of the land since the second world war and as soon as Is possible I will be back.

Best of luck when you do get back out there.
