As it can be seen from the number of vehicles on site, it was a good turn-out this week (10 members) despite the peristent showers. We only stopped earlier than usual in the afternoon because we got rather cold.
So, making sure we were all well togged up, we continued with our testpitting, which has proved very educational. The forms, supplied by the organisation monitoring this county-wide research, were specifically designed to make it easy for the teams involved to record their findings in a way that ensures all the data conforms; thus when it's eventually entered onto a database for analysis, it will be easier for the analysts to obtain clear picture of the total findings.
Meanwhile, in Tina's absence, Adrian and Karl and his dog (who didn't mow a meadow) continued with the metal detecting and found these lovely specimins.
As can be seen by this image on a Queen Victorian penny. Those of us old enough to have spent old pennies (and not necessarily in the loo!) will remember that they were often so frequently handled over the decades that the image got rubbed away. But the image on this coin is so crisp by comparison.
