* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Another Roman hoard declared treasure:
http://www.wiltsglosstandard.co.uk/news/9110056.Hoard_of_Roman_coins_found_by_Tetbury_farmer/
 

That's a fairly large amount of coins to bury with someone. Finds like this just make me wish we could know more about what happened.

I know exactly what you mean.  The individual stories have always caught my interest, especially those that are out of the ordinary in some way.  That, combined with a love of playing in the dirt, is the reason I majored in anthropology.
