Medieval Harness Pendant
« on: February 05, 2020, 07:57:11 AM »
Had a good day digging at the last dig near Montrose.
I unearthed a Medieval Harness pendant that TT have asked me to send in.
I found a Royal Artillery cap badge possibly WW1  which is bent but complete.
2 musket balls and a big old fired lead bullet.
1929 George Half Penny and what I was told is a Scottish Turner. I can’t see anything  on it.
A nice little old buckle with its pin. Possibly from a shoe.
And a few other bits and bobs.
I’ll post pics when my account allows.
Looking forward to the next one. 👍🏻

No such thing as bad weather.
Just inappropriate clothing.

All in all a great day these type of fields can be quite but when you do get something it can be special like your pendant .

Cheers Bruno.
Jim has some photos of the pendant. He could maybe upload them.
 I didn’t have a clue what it was when it was covered in muck but it was quite pretty when it cleaned up. It’s the first time I’ve found anything like this being new to the hobby. This is only my 2nd dig.
