Copper coins hammered into a tree trunk as an offering to the fairies...Just below Janet's Foss.
@RunningInCircles https://mastodon.social/media/EVGzXawXOZ5BHgMP724I spotted these earlier this year, below Uley Bury hill fort in Gloucestershire. At the bottom of the footpath there's a cursed sword attached to a tree.
@y6nH That's cool 😀
@RunningInCircles Here's the sword, with its nonsensical but threatening curse. https://mastodon.social/media/LZ5yGdIeqwBDbN0gn0U
@RunningInCircles Under that, it's signed "ROM 17". I thought it might be a Bible reference, but Romans doesn't have a chapter 17, so it's got to be the year. https://mastodon.social/media/tsaesXucI2R8yIxehOA
