Investigation Invitation

The Field Detectives is a group of historians that seek opportunities to survey fields that can tell us more about how our historic landscapes evolved. By sharing the findings from our field surveys, we help to inform and re-engage people with their local heritage. One of our favourite sayings is “Every field tells a story”.



On Saturday 13th April 2024 at the sleepy little village of Owthorpe in Nottinghamshire, we stood together in peace and remembrance to respect the lives of two US paratroopers who tragically lost their lives near here during pre D-Day training parachute jumps.


Darren Bond worked tirelessly to make this happen, and it was an honour to share this special day with him. As we raise our glasses to these two US soldiers; James T. Quisenberry and Thomas P McGinley, let's spare a moment to remember that wave of brave people who gave everything in pursuit of freedom.

Catch a glimpse of the day here.
