A great day's detecting up near St Andrews produced a Roman fibula brooch for me. I couldn't believe it when it popped up.  ;D

What a find! Well dug that man :).

Seems to be a Roman ‘dolphin’ brooch design. Must be an early one, would be good to hear what TT say...

Well done Craig, that's a cracking find. They don't often come up in Scotland.
