The Dig

Field 1: Approx. 33 acres. ///dress.survive.steady

Field 2: About 39 acres. ///reworked.fuss.table

Field 3: About 18 acres. ///gazes.moss.fixated

Field 4: About 36 acres. ///penny.detective.inert

Field 5: About 33 acres. ///update.excellent.helpful

NASH

This is a follow on from the dig we had here on 11 September. With over 130 acres of ground that has been cultivated and is also rolled, it has hardly been covered. In addition to fields 1-4, we have added Field 5 which is cultivated but not rolled. The two adjacent fields by the woods are out of bounds due to game bird rearing.

Field 1 is the first one off Whaddon Road and least searched. Field 4 has Roman pottery of all types so is the Roman hotspot and offers great views. Field 5 is found over the footpath accessed via Field 3, top right.  

Club renewals for all members will always be in AUGUST  to be renewed by the end of AUGUST yearly. We think it simplifies your renewal dates and will be easier to remember.
