A few days ago at low water had a look on the low water mark at Ramsgate behind the clock house looking at the way the shingle has laid and how the mud banks are formed. I did notice that someone had been digging and where they had been digging they had came across a wall buried in the shingle. I expect the wall must had been the objective because I was able to make a few finds amongst the spoil that had been washed through by the tide of which I will feature soon in another posting.
Getting back to Margate, I am still continuing searching for items and will be delivering a new batch of finds to the Margate Museum in the next week or so for the future exhibition.
i have been photographing more finds which I have included is this posting and in the top photograph are some of the pieces of bone found in the harbour. As you can see I have found another piece of smashed animal jawbone.
In this photograph is a copper keel bolt, a corroded copper boat nail with a rove. a washer marked with a broad arrow, an eyelet for a sail, brass tacks, a bronze cleat and a piece of copper keel band.
I like this piece of retro, it is a Lucas ranger fog light glass. Not sure how it ended up in the harbour.
I have used a badly corroded two pence piece for scale. In one part of the harbour all the coins found have suffered terrible corrosion.
A few modern finds including a cowl for a seagull outboard engine.
