We suspected that the site is Anglo-Saxon due to the research we carried out.
Unfortunately, the site has been ransacked by nighthawkers over the last 5 years, so many rare Anglo-Saxon coins and artefacts will have been stolen.
The first coin to emerge was indeed a Saxon styca of Aethelred II dating to AD 840 - AD 858.
Another styca and two sceats were also recovered during the same visit.
As well as Saxon coinage, Roman coins and artefacts also surfaced.
Several pieces of lead and small ferrous items were encountered reflecting that the site had been a very site over the years.
Saxon pins, mounts and Medieval objects also saw the light of day.

The archaeological dig at our Yorkshire farm went really well with lots of Roman pottery coming up including some fantastic large pieces!
Interesting to see the sizes of some of the pits and ditches.
There will be another report soon!
