The area we searched a few miles down the road for the XP Gold Summer rally produced well over 400 finds which were recorded by the Portable Antiquities Scheme, not to mention all the finds that went unrecorded at the event for whatever reasons.


These finds ranged from Bronze Age Spears, Anglo Saxon Gold Button Stud, Gold Roman Solidus, Anglo Saxon & Medieval Hammered coins, Roman coins & Artefacts and much much more.
