Their capital was at Durocortum (Reims, France) the second largest oppidum of Gaul on the Vesle. Allied with the Germanic tribes of the east, they repeatedly engaged in warfare against the Parisii and the Senones.They were renowned for their horses and cavalry.

These ampoulla were brought from pilgrimage places as a souvenir

Mitchiner suggests that many ampullae were used in the annual springtime ’Blessing the Fields’ ceremony, in which the Holy Water they contained was sprinkled on the ground to give prayer for a good harvest. Having served this purpose, Mitchiner suggests that the ampulla were discarded. Others have suggested that the ampulla were buried along with their contents for a similar purpose.

This is how it was dug with no black or crust so is it the 10% gold type issue ? Reminds me of a 620 AD English Crondall Witmen type - sent to Fitzwilliam museum for recording and ID

Turns out to be a Saxon gold shilling, amazing !!!!!!!!!!!

This new find (EMC 2016.0248) is indeed a Witmen type gold shilling. It is similar to some coins in the Crondall hoard but from dies not represented in the hoard.
The coin should be about 50-55% gold.
An excellent start to the season.
