A Burial in Oving, 1946: the life of George Laurence Bazett Hull and his crew Buckinghamshire History Festival

Wing Commander George Laurence Bazett Hull died in an air crash in 1946, and was buried in Oving, Buckinghamshire.  When a team of archaeologists and historians found the wreckage of this crash in a field in 2017, they did not anticipate the journey that Hull, or 'BOK' as he was known to some, would take them on.  Here is that story.   **46 min**

Since 1999 the Field Detectives have forged trusting and lasting relationships with landowners, local communities, and heritage sector colleagues. By sharing the stories that we uncover from our field survey activities; we continue to inform a better understanding of how our farming landscapes evolved over the centuries.

Our field survey reports are an exact finds location record, and by working closely with our heritage sector colleagues, we are establishing a growing set of detailed historic collections. These detailed studies are held in trust by the respective landowners who act as heritage custodians; providing a unique set of rich historical landscape investigations for further study and collaboration.

Every field really does, have its own unique story to tell

If you have a field for us to investigate; give us a call.
