250 ACRES

OF

ROLLED AND SEEDED GROUND

IN 

CLANFIELD

OXFORDSHIRE

 

We have arranged approx 250 acres of rolled and seeded ground in the very very historically rich area of Clanfield in Oxfordshire, The Metal Detectives Group members have searched these fields before and with some excellent results from Neolithic flint arrow heads and flint tools to Iron Age artefacts, Roman coins and artefacts, Medieval coins and artefacts and the more modern finds such as Georgian  and victorian coins and artefacts with a Nice full gold guinea being the nicest of the modern finds made on the site.

 

The search area its self has several recorded known features within it from Bronze Age to Roman , the fields surrounding our search area are littered with crop marks of settlements, trackways, farmsteads , villages and much much more.

 

Finds from the area have also included many Bronze Age items such as swords, daggers, spear heads, razors, axes, gouges and more.... other sites close by have also given Anglo Saxon Gold and silver, Iron Age gold & Silver and many other amazing finds....

 

Leisure Promotions will be in attendance to cater for all your Metal Detecting needs, to give out help and advice and more.

Burger van will be in attendance to supply us with hot and cold food and drinks for the day

 

We are confident we will be seeing more great finds from these fields. And we will be doing the usual photographing and recording the finds you make for a dig report.
