Uncovering A Treasure Trove.

Hey,

.

I hope that I find you bright-eyed  and bushy-tailed upon this fine Friday morning.

I say ‘fine’ but in actual fact it is grey and damp again here, but it is still extremely warm and that is fine with me.

.

Did you hear the exciting news from Somerset?

.

A treasure hunter discovered a rare bonanza there.

A Mr Crisp found a hoard of over 50,000 3rd Century AD coins, after investigating an area of ground that gave a ‘funny signal’ on his metal detector.

.

They were contained in a massive jar, weighing 350 lbs, that was buried about a foot deep.

Mr Crisp immediately reported his discovery, over a year ago, as soon as he realised such an important find would need to be totally excavated by knowledgeable experts.

Since then the exciting discovery has been carefully and painstakingly unearthed, by the British Museum’s team from the Portable Antiques Scheme.

.

If the coroner declares that the wonderful find is treasure then Mr Crisp and the landowner will each share the proceeds from the sale of the hoard at it’s market value.

.

As you will see from the following video, treasure hunting is exciting….and rewarding!

Hmmm…..I think a metal detector may be on my next Christmas list!

Have a good one,
