In all my detecting years I have only found three pieces of BA axe heads and yet been present on several occasion when DW members have found them. Picture of 185 recently found attached!

2 separate hoards containing 185 axes and a large quantity of ingots, dating to the late BA (ca. 1,000 BC), discovered at Driffield in east Yorkshire, England. The site is believed to have been a metal workerís workshop.

There comes a time in every rightly constructed boys life when he has a raging urge to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure.

Fantastic find - I've only found part of one - and that's a precious enough find for me.

I drove past Driffield at the New Year (my in-laws are County Durham / North Yorkshire based) - I sometimes wonder how - especially with a hoard that size - it has been missed in the past.

A cracking find, I've had many pieces off axe fragments, yet to find a while one. May be best to melt down the bits I got and make

What a find/s just look at the colour, great.
Iíve wondered, in the past, how many times some of us have ignored a signal because weíve thought it was just too big.
Having said that I did go back and investigate one. Spent ages digging through roots to old cattle grid. Roll Eyes
