METAL DETECTIVES GROUP & LEISURE PROMOTIONS DIG
RECENTLY DEEP PLOUGHED AND CULTIVATED
Sunday 28th of April MDG & LP are teaming up for our monthly adventure, this time we head to Kingsey in Buckinghamshire on 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 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 these field 4 or 5 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 Iron Age silver & Bronze units,, Anglo Saxon & Norman pennies, Anglo Saxon gold tremisis, Silver Roman, Gold hammered coins, 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.
One down side is the site has had a light covering of green waste in the past, and you will find furniture fixings and some foil, tin etc as well as some good finds, which will hopefully make up for the crap you might dig during the day.
FOOD WAGON WILL BE IN ATTENDANCE , ALONG WITH LP DETECTING TO CATER FOR YOUR DETECTING NEEDS AND WANTS, DONT FORGET YOU CAN ASK THEM TO BRING SPECIFIC BITS TO THE DIG FOR YOU TO BUY ON THE DAY
PARKING FOR THIS DIG WILL BE TIGHT - PLEASE CAR SHARE WHERE YOU CAN TO HELP.
