Scouts and students discovered a musket ball, a wedding ring, and two military pendants when they took part in an archaeological dig to investigate the borough’s past.
The youngsters helped the Kingston upon Thames Archaeological Society after they won a £28,400 Heritage Lottery grant to investigate a site on the Hogsmill River in August last year.
The dig at the Southwood Scout Activity Centre in Tolworth focused on palaeoecology, which reconstructs the past environment through bore-holing and digging pits.
A lead token was also among the items found through the digging and metal detecting, which helped scouts achieve their heritage badge.-Taken from Article
