"Assortment" is the right word, in this area any period could appear -
Neolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Roman, Early Saxon, Middle Saxon, Late Saxon/Viking, Medieval, Tudor, Post-Medieval!

I've been amazed at your finds for years. Your collection of the things you've dug out of those fields must be quite a sight.

I've been reading your posts for years and I'm amazed at the numerous awesome finds you are digging out of those fields. The collection you have removed from the ground after all those hunts over many years must be overwhelming!
I'm going to Mindenhall AFB in England, It's near Cambridge. I'll be going next year to visit a family member who is stationed there.
I will be bringing my metal detector!

Good area. Get them to find a nearby farmer to give permission.
