After two visits the farmer wants us back again!

Currently, a bit of a placeholder with more information to follow and I will update this post as and when.

It will be new land on the same farm.

It will be 9.00 am start until you drop or 6.00 pm.

It will be flat cultivated land and might be drilled.

It will be £20 for the day.

There will be at least 100 acres of land.

About the farm - we have had a massive array of finds from Iron Age all the way through to modern. 2 visits have produced 3 Treasure cases. 1 rare central european Boi gold stater, approx 16 bronze staters, Roman coins, brooches etc, Anglo Saxon sceattas, a huge variety of hammered coins, tokens etc.

The above is no reflection on what the new land will be like!!

TO ATTEND: Please email jcmaloney@btinternet.com with "Salisbury Dig 2022" in the subject line.

IF YOU PREVIOUSLY ATTENDED YOU WILL ALREADY BE ON THE MAILING LIST.

Spoken to the farmer this week.
109 acres of land will be flat & cultivated across 2 fields.
Parking will be on a private farm track which is about a mile or so long.
I have sourced nearby camping for anyone who wants such - you will need to book that yourself and that farm does not allow detecting.
A "teaser" email will go out in the next couple of weeks.

:thumbsup:

Oh my god that looks like an attractive dig. I have a feeling attendees will be in for a treat.
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
