Below are pictures of finds recovered from events we have organised for our members. These have been unearthed by digging holes after receiving a positive signal from a metal detector. We encourage our members to ensure that when they have retrieved their find, they back fill the hole and leave the ground as they found it. Anyone attending one of our digs who fails to carry out this very simple procedure is immediately removed from the event and from Lets Go Digging. We do not tolerate anyone failing to do this.

MEMORIES OF MUNDHAM!
What a fantastic weekend had by all, old faces, new faces, great bunch of people, we really do have the best atmosphere, best fun, best members of any group! Thanks to all who attended, it was a real pleasure seeing you all and I hope everyone had a fantastic time!
A big thank you to our Farmer, Simon, who went beyond the call of duty, has to come tops on our list of landowners who pull out all the stops.
As you can see from the picture below, we had just the bees knees of a site!
With what came up, when that ground is compact and settled, it has to be worth a revisit. After everyone left, it tanked it down and yet another 2 hammered came out of the camp field. Just a day or so too late, that downpour.
Anyway, here’s a selection of the finds and I’m sure there will be many more appearing on our Facebook page over the next few days I hope as I missed some people who left whilst I was off site.
Biggest ever crotal bell found on an LGD dig
Stunning weekend in Brightwalton, lots of interesting finds from the Roman period through the Saxon and into the Medieaval era.
Pictures from Wem, a selection of a Roman, Bronze Age, Medieval, Georgian and Victorian on this one. We have another 100 acres available in December.
The Concrete Ingot 😉 An exciting quarter of an hour!
Here are some of the photos taken at our Falmouth dig! Four days of relaxation in a fantastic part of the country. The amount of finds on this event were substantial although mostly of the Georgian period. From buttons to buckles, coins to artifacts, we saw a vast range of items being recovered. Sadly the acidity of the soil did little to help the Georgian copper coins but it was dig, dig and dig! We still have over 100 acres left to do, so we will be planning another visit at some stage.
We also had the pleasure of the Cornwall FLO Anna Tyack attending Sunday who recorded some of the finds and identified many others for us!
A big thanks to everyone who made the journey, especially to our latest members Bert, Peter and Sven who travelled all the way from Belgium for this dig.
Pictures from the Bodiam Dig! Surprisingly lacking in the expected Roman and Medieval finds but we have a further 100 acres of crop and woodland to detect which we’re looking to book.
The return visit to Chantry turned up some nice bits and pieces. Another day there and a lot more wouuld have come up I’m sure! Big thanks to Roy, the farmer for allowing us on his land and the effort he’s making to get us a bit more from surrounding landowners. Here are the pics!
All the pics from Chantry! Thanks to everyone attending who made it a really friendly, interesting weekend, the farmer Roy for allowing us on his land and everyone that contributed to making it all go smoothly.
Pics from the Michaelchurch Escley dig 03/07/2016
All credit to our farmer Viv and his son for Tom for ferrying everyone up to the top of the hill twice, an interesting venue that could do with another visit someday!
Pics from the Ashbourne dig!
Here’s some of the pics from Whitby, lots more to come!
Here’s some of the pics from the Brightwalton Dig. Great weekend that is to be repeated TWICE in August. Well done to Morley on winning the Deus Lite and all the other raffle winners, many thanks to everyone that turned up and supported us, hope to see you at the next one!

Wellington Dig 22nd May
Excellent ground to detect but not a lot of quality finds. However, with over 200 acres available, the area was only skimmed in the 8 hours we were there.
