DS1810 Sunday the 2nd December 2018 EDZELL ** UPDATED**
« on: November 15, 2018, 04:27:36 PM »
We have been given the green light to hold a dig on a large estate near the deserted village of Edzell in Angus

If you don’t wish to comment on this thread you can text myself or Jim on 07885425662 or 07729 564193

THE DIG LIST WILL BE KEPT PRIVATE

The local farm manager and gamekeeper have given their approval to the estate to hold a sunday dig on the fields surrounding the deserted village and castle sites of Edzell.
These fields have never held a dig  and if all goes well we will be looking to hold a summer rally in the area next year.

 
We hope to attract decent numbers to this dig as this is the last chance til summer to detect this area as it will be under plough by next week.
We have just today secured a hard standing car park that will hold 15 cars and hopefully can add more nearer the day but on field parking exists also.
 There may well be a little area f Scheduled Land which we respectfully ask that no one enters with or without a detector on the day. It will be obvious as to which area is scheduled n the day.

This is the first time the estate has allowed any detecting other than that of an individual. Hopefully we can find evidence of the deserted village and other finds associated with the locality.

As per previous post. The land is now confirmed as 2 stubble fields very close to the original early settlement of edzell in Angus.  Situated approx half a mile from the modern Georgian village of slateford (now known as edzell). We will be very close to the old village Kirk and castle. This is last chance for these fields this year as the estate are ploughing after the dig.   Please sign up on this thread.
