I am conscious, having reviewed this blog, I have not paid proper attention to the range of artefacts and objects I have recovered and photographed as a result of my wandering on these sites…so to rectify that I include a number here:
These are – as far as I can tell – frozen splashes of iron or, more probably steel. that have been gathered up as waste and disposed of with the slag, and are now washing from the cliffs. Call me a hopeless romantic, but I am captivated by the colours and the fact that so many are effectively heart shaped. 🙂
The following, on the other hand, speak of a direct link back to the people that used them. I can’t help the feeling that if these were Roman or Tudor we’d be clamouring to preserve them, but as they aren’t we’re happy to see these things simply wash into the sea.
