Why to I.D. !

So many of the Artefacts that are found or has been found are just parts of something much bigger, and so to gain an understanding of what “has been found” it is always relevant to a much bigger picture…
One of the most problematic things, any detectorist, archaeologist, or anyone who digs up an Artefact or have found an item, that they are unsure off, it is how to describe what they have found, this is where many people fail, especially someone new to the hobby of Metal Detecting, and this is where an item, is then either discarded or put into a box of “don’t knows” its these items that need to be addressed as a greater proportion of them are more important then they look, this is where the forums and social media sites help, by simply posting a “photo & help to id please” could bring in the ID you need… cousons 1why do these items need an ID ? quite simple, if you have found part of a Roman brooch or coin for example, then there is an good possibility that it might just turn out to be a Roman site, which then produces Artefacts from that era, on every turn of the seasons plough…which you can then look forward to maybe finding, an item from the Roman period next time you venture out on that field, as there is a good possibility that occasionally something might turn up on each new seasons ploughing…

Now its whether you found an ID on muddy heritage or one that you are pointed too, it does not matter, whatsoever, as long it has been identified, then the aim of muddy heritage has been achieved, so click on, any of the highlighted words dotted throughout the website of muddy heritage to be taken to more helpful websites, some of these sites are “age-specific” whereas others cover a multitude of ages…
