Dig Details

 

We have permission to return to 75 acres including the Roman Field and the Stater field that we used for the first-time last year in this great area, we searched them in stubble and rough cultivated last year.  Both fields have been worked since we used them last year with the Stater field being deep ploughed. There will be a couple of other fields that we used in stubble last year also.

 

The Roman field on our first visit produced over 150 Roman coins including a couple of Denarius and Siliquae, there were also several Roman brooches found.

 

The first field produced a lovely uni-faced gold Stater and some nice hammered coins, this is obviously only for info, it is not intended to big up the site or have any bearing on this visit.

 

 

Directions to site

 

This site can be accessed from off the A14 at Junction 12, this is the exit for the A6116 to Corby.   Go straight over the roundabout after exiting the A14.  Now continue along the Corby road, passing Lowick and Sudborough turns, the site is on your right about ½ a mile before the Brigstock turn, there is a track way to the parking area, please be aware there is a high centre hump so you need to span this or you will damage low spoilers sumps etc, so look at the track not the fields on arrival, TURN LEFT TO THE PARKING AREA BEFORE THE HOUSE AND FARM YARD.  There will only be CS signs up close to the entrance point.

 

Please call answer machine prior to travelling to confirm details (01933 399814)
