METAL DETECTIVES GROUP & LEISURE PROMOTIONS (LP DETECTING) DIG
SUNDAY 26TH JANUARY 2020
ON 100 ACRES OF WELL ROTTED STUBBLE
IN DEDDINGTON, OXFORDSHIRE
We have our 1st MDG/LP adventure of 2020 lined up for the Sunday the 26th and with 2 new fields that we have never searched before in the line up along with 4 others fields that the MDG members searched one around 1 year ago with finds being made on the day being mainly roman and medieval/post medieval. The day in question was incredibly wet and did not give the MDG members the best search conditions on that day so many of the 4 previously searched fields will still hold a great deal of potential for finds.
There are several recorded roman features close by as well as Iron Age hill fort, castle and lots more fantastic history in the area and great potential for finds in the fields around Deddington.
Previous digs around the village have given many treasure finds (mainly medieval & post medieval gold & Silver rings, brooches and strap ends) a few Bronze Age finds, Iron Age coins, Medieval coins and artefacts, point medieval coins and artefacts and lots and lots of victorian / Georgian finds + the usual suspects.
If you do some research on Deddington and the area you will discover a vast and rich history, you can even find all the old field names for the village and the area with a quick google search.
