METAL DETECTIVES GROUP & LEISURE PROMOTIONS DIG 

IN

BAULKING

OXFORDSHIRE

ON

150+ ACRES

OF

CULTIVATED GROUND WITH LIGHT COVER CROP & SOME STUBBLE 

WITH

SOME NEW LAND TO SEARCH

 

We Held a weekender here back at the end of July but we had several things against us that weekend like the stubble, some still standing crops and recently spread muck, despite the few issues we faced that weekend it did not stop some very nice finds coming to light, with some cracking hammered coins coming from the field we camped in and a few of the fields closer to the farm, the larger field on the hill produced some iron age gold, some saxon silver and a good number of Roman bronze coinage and some brooches and other artefacts. now the fields have been well cultivated, with one or 2 of them having a light cover crop in they are going to be far easier to detect and we can imagine now the fields will be easier to work and detect the finds will be far more prolific and plentiful.

The history of the area is very rich with the uffington white horse not too far away, several roman and iron age sites in the vicinity, especially the one next door to our biggest search field.

Leisure Promotions team cant be there in person this weekend.

food and rink yet to be confirmed
