11 December, 2020 Controlled metal detecting on Roman sites in Surrey

Skilled metal detectorists working under controlled conditions have made a remarkable contribution to understanding Roman sites in Surrey. There are metal-rich Roman sites, with many finds, and other Roman sites which we now know are relatively metal-free. Two extensive and previously unknown Roman sites, which have each produced over 800 coins and many other objects, will be described in detail.
