Detectival

Bringing the World of Metal Detecting Together

Spring Detectival 2019

The first Spring Detectival was a massive success with a brilliant atmosphere, some fantastic finds, a beautiful location and of course the weather was not too bad either!

A very big thank you to Leisure Promotions, as our title sponsor, for all their help and support for Spring Detectival 2019.

Those who came were in for a real treat with the stall holders and traders set up in the main marquee, a good selection of food available, and the fully licensed bar providing some well needed drinks after the day's detecting.


The entire Spring Detectival team, including the marshals, security and volunteers, worked really hard over the weekend to help make the Detectival experience a memorable one.

 

And the weekend was completed by the amazing discovery of a Medieval hoard (Hambleden Hoard) consisting of 545 hammered silver pennies and 12 full gold nobles!


Apart from the hoard there were hundreds of fantastic finds made ranging from Bronze age right through with some cracking Iron Age coins/artefacts, Roman coins/artefacts, Anglo Saxon coins/artefacts, lots of Medieval and more modern finds too. If you made some finds and didn't record them with our finds recording team in the main marquee please take them to your local Finds Liaison Officer to record.


Thank you to all of you who came along, had a great weekend, made some great finds and friends!


Our main Detectival event in September 2019 is on over 600 acres of new undetected ground and 1000 acres in total, near Charlbury/Burford in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. Please visit our website for more information.
