NewsWebsite Update

Friday Update: 10 February 2023


It’s strange how little coincidences pop up some weeks. This week we have two exceptional coins from the same period in English vying for Find of the Week; a possibly unique penny of Offa of Mercia and an exceptional penny of Cuthred of Kent, who began his reign just two years after Offa died. We’ve seven other readers’ finds, a few are somewhat unusual and one that I’ve never seen before as a detecting find.

The other coincidence is that “Rother” crops up twice. In PAS finds is the story behind a 17th century token from a pub in Rotherhithe and another report from the Rother district of East Sussex. This is a good news story of another hoard, found by a detectorist, going on display in his local museum.
