This one has had a fortune spent on it over the years . Your new venture into remapping is interesting . Do you get better MPG ON A MILD BHP UPGRADE ????How about a vid of the sound love it .

Well I was looking forward to seeing the finds from yesterday! Where are all the photos?? Thanks for those who have shared their pics and added comments about what they found but 35 people digging in a field and I've only seen photos the hammered Charles shilling and the Roman coin ( and deer and a mini :) )! Surely there was more than that came up!
Patiently waiting for more pics.
Cheers
Neil.

A few no shows, think we ended up with only 26. I only got 3 coins, lost one lol and musket ball. Roman got a hammered, sorry I meant a hammer head. Still enjoyed the day and the crack with a good set of lads though, bit windy though..
Back was playing up so left earlier than normal.
