Ancient Coin Mystery
"We found this coin like thing in the garden and would love to know what it is, its not a coin because it has a stud on the back side where it has been attached to something, perhaps a harness or something like that. It is made of some kind of metal and looks as though it has been mangled by a plough or something on one side. We live very close to Hadrians wall and obviously finds turn up all the time but I don’t think this is roman, it has an archer on it that looks more Egyptian to me but its hard to say. I have tried to find something like it on the internet and in the library but have had no luck and our local museum hasn’t been able to come up with anything either except to say it might be celtic …..any ideas anyone?"
