Warmington Heritage Group’s involvement in archaeology was triggered by the discovery of large amounts of pottery in local ploughland. Members started field walking and then excavating the site and found considerable evidence of the site’s ancient past – from Mesolithic through to the Medieval.

The most exciting finds have been Roman with evidence of sizeable dwellings on the site, a Roman belt buckle, ornaments, pottery and most famously the Warmington Hoard – a large collection of very early silver denarii which have been bought by the Warwick Museum service.

Archaeology on the site is lead by David Freke who organises excavations and finds processing on the site.
