Metal Detectives Group & Leisure Promotions Dig

 
150 ACRES +
 
OF FRESHLY CUT PASTURE
 
IN 
 
CLANFIELD
 
OXFORDSHIRE
 
 
This coming Sunday we have permission to search just over 150 acres of freshly cut pasture not far from the banks of the river Thames in Clanfield, Oxfordshire. 
 
The Metal Detectives Group Members have search some of the area before and we have had excellent results on previous visits to this area with many Bronze Age finds coming up and being recorded with us, these have included several rapiers, daggers, axe heads, razors, along with some nice Iron Age coins and artefacts having been found, Roman coins & artefacts, Anglo Saxon artefacts, Medieval coins and artefacts and loads of other bits and bobs including some stunning early milled gold and silver coins.
 
MDG & LP have also done 2 previous digs on the arable ground around the pasture and we have seen Bronze Age palstave axe and parts of other Bronze Age bits, a few Iron Age finds, roman and medieval & victorian gold on previous joint visits.
 
The history of the area is vast with crossing points across the river, Iron Age settlements, roman roads & settlements and lots lots more. The whole search area is pasture has has not been ploughed for many years, some finds on previous visits to the area have been deeper so for the older more stunning finds a low and slow approach would be best and if you have one a larger coil for better ground coverage and better penetration.  If you don’t yet have a larger coil you can always chat with Peter or Ash @ Leisure Promotions in advance of next Sundays dig and ask them to make sure they have some options in stock on the day for you to buy.
 
Parking will be in one of our search fields with access to the site down a long dirt track to the parking area and search fields.
 
LP Metal Detecting may be hand to help and assist you with sales, orders and questions.
 
Burger van man will be in attendance to keep us all fed and watered all day with everything from bacon rolls and coffee in the morning to cheese burgers and fizzy drinks in the afternoon
