This dig will take place in Raddington, Somerset. We have been to two farms in this area, one that allowed us to detect right up to the medieval church walls! This visit is to the second farm where we have land extremely close to Tumulus and an ancient settlement. Totally undetected, we will have approximately 75-100 acres, on the highets section of the farm. Previous visits to the area have produced hammered coinage, some Roman, a viking artefact and many other items.

Here is a video of one of our previus visits to Raddington.

    Unfortunately this clashes with the DCDD weekender and I can’t manage both. I hope some great stuff comes up for you.
