Full description

2003. Metal detector survey in field immediately north of Hickling parish church.
To investigate the possibility that there may be a Middle Saxon or Late Saxon settlement focus in the area.
Few finds of any date were found, and all were medieval or post medieval, including a hammered silver coin and a jetton. Although Anglo-Saxon occupation may have been close to the church, it seems apparent that it was not to the north.
Details/report to follow.
