Wandering on the Weald

Attended a Weekend Wanderers metal detecting rally near Crockham Hill, Kent. Hottest day of the year. I found cartridge cases, plenty of junk and a penny sized button, 18/19th C, made of tombac, a copper-zinc alloy. Few finds considering the 50-100 detectorists on site, but included a Roman silver coin of the emperor Gallienus, half a hammered medieval silver, three post medieval hammered, some buckles, a crotal bell and an 1885 silver threepence. Penny treated us to dinner at The Silk Road, excellent food and service again.
