Salisbury, Wiltshire. 15th September 2019.

The opportunity has arisen to search 85+ acres of cultivated mud within a stones throw of Salisbury city centre (if you can throw a stone a mile!).

As such it is an “Open Dig” for all.

Price per person is £20 with detecting 9.00am until 6.00pm after a briefing at 8.50am.

To attend please use the “Contact” page on this website.

Scrap bins will be provided and MUST be used.

First Aid, Finds photography and a finds display case will be at the checkpoint.

There is a prize for coin & artefact of the day.

There is a lot of history nearby, the field is bordered by an old drovers track, there are Roman roads and Scheduled Ancient monuments within a mile of the field.

Exact location will be added nearer the time. This oil is fairly close!
