    When you remove the rubbish you will find relics deeper next time. It could be boring to remove rubbish- but in the end you (and the enviroment) win on it.
    I found an macehead in bronze from the 1300s thanks to this method.

    interesting Trondk,i understand the practical reasons for this process.I also pick everything up for much the same reasons however, it still doesnt explain why they were in a pit with no other debris i may add.puzzling

    These were from an area known to be used for target drone practice.The 20mm and .303 bullets are probably from Spitfires known to have been seen flying low to the target area

    Popped around to the other end of this vast place today after work.Only 40mins or so of daylight but good to get out there.The area searched was a wooded bank,not that many finds but pleased with what i did find
    The .303 round actually broke in two whilst being cleaned,a first for me.
    Blue tipped and stamped with RG 1942 B VIIZ.
    Of course it wouldnt be a war time airfield dig without finding a Brylcreem bottle.
    A tube of what i think to be grease.
    Part of a webbing belt buckle,along with another buckle part of some sort.Click image for larger version.
