Weekend Wandering...

Post by Bargeman » Sun Mar 10, 2019 5:55 pm

Today I attended my first dig with the Weekend Wanderers on a nice pre detected field down near Alton. And although I never found anything myself (no change there then) I did see, and hear of some nice finds, I saw a nice small hammy, and I heard that a Celtic, and some Roman coinage came up to a lucky few ::g

The field was a good fossil field though, and I found a nice small urchin, trapped in a piece of flint...

And saw some other nice fossils picked up by others too ::g

Being as it was so close to the Watercress line, there was plenty of steam trains to be watched...

All in a nice day out, in typical spring weather, the Weekend Wanderers were very welcoming and friendly, the cost was very reasonable, even for a non member, and a nice touch was the free tea and coffee on offer all day ::g

Walk that line, torn apart
spend your whole life trying.
Ride that train, free your heart,
it's midnight up in Harlem.

Love the urchin and the 'pre detected field' idea. Very polite of you! :D

Great urchin... nothing beats a good echinoid... really perks me up when I find one on an otherwise quiet day and I love it when you can still see them as they would have been; protruding from their primordial muddy resting place! Nice one!
