Okay, this was not what I expected to when I brushed off the soil. This had all the lads in my group sniggering like silly school boys.

The lads think Roman, but I'm thinking 1700's date wise.

What ever date it is, it is definitely going to Treasure Trove.

So - probably post-mediaeval, as you suggest.

I have to smile every time I look at the thread title in the listing as my brain keeps saying lead as rhymes with need! Then I wonder if the poster has been given the tip off on a small cinema showing exotic movies!
