AN ADDITIONAL 20 ACRES OF WOODLAND NOW ADDED TO THIS EVENT!!!
This event is being held near Hockwold cum Wilton, an exciting location for all our members who know how prolific the finds are in Norfolk. We are timing this event to coincide with our Beetley dig on the Sunday so for many, having two days detecting just 30 mils apart will make the journey even more worthwhile.
On offer is 100 acres of undetected pasture and we are restricting the numbers to 150, of which a 100 maximum vehicle limit is set and 50 passengers. As this is a new permission and likely to provide further opportunities, we will be organising the land availability in stages on the day in order to monitor the hole filling and ensure that our presence attracts, as usual, further offers.
In 1962, An important Roman hoard of silver tableware and coins was found in Hockwold. It is now part of the Roman-British collections at the British Museum.
Originally, the village was located next to the river. However, after the black plague infected the village, it was burnt down and relocated a mile to the north.
Roman Ritual Crown, Hockwold-cum-Wilton found with five other diadems, at a temple site in Hockwold-cum-Wilton.
