ASTON
 
OXFORDSHIRE
 
100 + ACRES 
 
RECENTLY DEEP PLOUGHED AND CULTIVATED
 
 
Sunday 31st of March MDG & LP are teaming up for our monthly adventure, this time we head to Aston in Oxfordshire on over 100 acres of recently deep ploughed and cultivated ground in a very interesting and archaeologically significant area. Our search field its self has a number of interesting crop marks such as track ways and hut circles, and the field right next to our search field has a known roman villa, as well as these features the area its self is littered with archaeological sites with known and unknown and the area is steeped in history.
 
The Metal Detectives Group have detectected this field 2 or 3 times in the past 5/6 years and each time great finds have come to light, these have ranged from Bronze Age - Iron Age - Roman - Saxon & Medieval to of course the more usual and more modern finds.
 
Some of the most memorable finds have included Bronze Age spear, Gold quarter stater, Anglo Saxon sceats, Silver Roman, Gold Sovereign, Medieval gold ring and more.
 
With the site recently being deep ploughed we are expecting the site to be extra productive for us again with a number of great finds coming up through the day.
 
PARKING FOR THIS DIG WILL BE A SQUEEZE - PLEASE CAR SHARE WHERE YOU CAN TO HELP.
