CTX 3030

Lord Russell's silver Hawking Ring (1).JPG

From a rainy start on an early Sunday Morning, myself and fellow Club members of the Dorset Relic Hunters Metal Detecting Club sat out to search for the hidden history hidden in a field in the Hampshire area.

The area has great historic interest from Bronze Age right through to post medieval, so you never know what is going to be found.

Medievial Figure


June 11, 2015 08:00am
minelab metal detector finds ancient figure.jpg

I was out detecting on a friends land for only the second time using the E-Trac after switching from a Explorer SE.Still trying to get to grips with it and was told by friends who are E-Trac owners "any decent 2 way signals dig them until you get used to the detector".I had been wandering for a while when i got a very clear stable signal. When i dug the square of pasture i saw what i thought at first was just a smooth chunk of lead i was very wrong. I lifted the item out of the soil and turned it over to see it had what looked like eyes. I put it in my pouch and thought no more of it till i got home and started to remove the remaining soil with a tooth pick.It turned out to be a figure of some description. Once the soil was off i gave it a gentle brush to reveal all it's glory literally!!. I took some pictures and emailed them off to my local finds liaison officer who was rather excited. I took the figure up to the office where it was record and sent off to be looked at.I got a call on 11 June to say the figure was back after being recorded and it is post medieval and is dated between 1700 - 1850.The figure was given the name ROD for reasons that are clear in the pictures. The figure can be seen by going onto the Portable Antiquities Scheme website and searched for with the following ID number DUR-DB1036

minelab metal detector finds army ring return e.jpg

Lost VMI ring by Joe Bouchelle. (used with permission)
Something amazing happened this week! My new friend, John Justice, who works at Fork Union Military Academy where I used to work, called me on Tuesday. I had never met him. He said "Is this Joe Bouchelle?" "Yes" "Did you go to VMI?" "Yes." "Did you used to work at FUMA?" "Yes..." and just when I thought...this is a little creepy....he said, "Did you lose your VMI ring?" I said, "Yes I did- almost 20 years ago!" Well, John was doing some metal detecting in the front yard of the house we used to live in at FUMA, and found my ring! After 19 years!!! I am so grateful for his honesty and work in tracking me down. I am grateful to have my ring back, but also grateful to have a new friends in John and his wonderful wife Debi. Thank you, John and Debi Justice! ‪#‎sharegoodness ‪#‎feelingblessed

A Roman numberplate?


June 07, 2015 09:00am
minelab metal detector finds treasure.jpg

The sand was very wet and digging was terrible, but the signal was too good to leave it out there.
I put away the safari and tried to dig with my hands , I was reaching down in the wet sand with my arm until i couldn’t go any further.
Then after half an hour I felt something, an pulled it up.
It was already dark and the shape was of an numberplate but it had little holes om the edges.
In my car i saw the find for the first time and realized it was a very old find.

It was later determined as an roman copper(bronze) binding of a strongbox or a chest .
It was in a perfect condition.

a great find, at about 70cm deep. I love my safari.

minelab metal detector finds ancient coin piece.jpg

Like a normal forum dig, everyone is very friendly and we end up chatting for the first couple of hours!!
When I finally managed to start detecting, I pulled up this beautiful but tiny Richard the lion Scottish hammered coin. It was my first cut quarter hammered I have ever found so I was over the moon.
