Cast Bronze minature prayer book

The miniture book found metal detecting, has been dated to 15th century, it was found on the pilgrims way near Winchester,The inscription is latin which suggests pre reformation, it makes me feel it was lost or hidden as it would have been dangerous to have anything catholic in the home, i have found the area it was lost used to have secret masses, it reminds me of a time in England when there was a fear to worship your religion.
