Being retired, the trip to Bury is not too onerous and Andrew confirmed my identification of around sixty items and took them for recording. There were three bits that I hadn't been sure of and he identified these for me.
|This is medieval and probably a casket fitting|
|I suggested a medieval vessel handle - it's a medieval vessel leg|
|I wondered if this could be a Roman coin but it's a post medieval medallion|
To make sure that it wasn't a wasted journey to Bury, Marion joined me and we had a good couple of hours looking around the town. We've been before but not for long - it really is a great place to visit with amazing Cathedral and Abbey grounds, plenty of shops and a great selection of places to eat and drink.
We had a coffee and sandwich at an old fashioned cafe with this view of the ancient church buildings and, after a good look around the old and new shopping areas, we went for a refreshing cold drink at the beautiful Angel Hotel.
We'll have to go for another visit when I've had a few more trips out with the detector.
