Case study
« on: August 09, 2019, 03:57:04 PM »
New permission, currently in stubble, near to some new roads in the north-east of Glasgow.

Old O.S. maps don't show anything other than farmland.

I unearthed the finds below in the space of 2 hours. The field is quite noisy, which is a good sign.

I'm just wondering what the experienced detectorists on here would be thinking at this stage.

Does the lack of any pre-Victorian finds rule out the possibility of older use/occupation, or am I being too dismissive at this stage?

Just keep working away at it as there could be older stuff there  :)  The more you work it the better the chance of older finds

Next to the lead shot, looks like a watchwinder. Far too early to be dismissive
