Had to make an appointment to see the tithe maps i was interested in and wear the white snooker refs gloves, and was watched by an odd looking fellow to make sure i didnt doodle on his maps
They also , or at least did have a library of archealogical books detailing all the digs and excavations in Somerset, those are a wealth of knowledge dating back to the 60's with digs and records of stuff long gone

Have you checked if your area is mentioned in the Doomsday book?
Where i live has a mention in the Doomsday book :shock:

That`s interesting Bruce.
Looking at the inhabitants, they did not have servants then but Slaves. :o
Worth reading the link for that.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Have to say i do look at the NLS Geo ref maps of a new field but never found anything as a result.
I have however found the exact area, where ammunition crates, were being opened up during WW2 and also a field where Militias camped.
Building up a picture of the finds you make and where.
Good Luck, :thumbsup:
Dave.
