Archaeological Finds Day

On Saturday December 6th, 2014 we held our annual Archaeology day at Wing Library.

  • The Finds Liaison Officer from the Buckinghamshire Portable Antiquities Scheme attended and identified a number of finds brought in by the general public..
  • The Curator of Archaeology  from Buckinghamshire County Museum was also there with some of the important archaeological finds found from in and around Wing including some funky Roman chariot wheel hubcaps!!
  • One of our local metal detectorists was also in attendance with some of his recent finds from in and around the Parish of Wing.
  • Our archaeologist, Martin, was also there answering questions regarding the archaeology of Wing and he revealed the exciting news of the Saxon settlement evidence found in the village through the excavation of our Garden Test Pits. The finds from this years and last years test pits were also on display.
  • Tea and Coffee were supplied by Wing Community Library so a big thank you to them.
  • And finally a big thank you to all those attended. Hopefully we’ll find even more next year!!!
