Friday Update: 17 May 2024


It’s been a few weeks since we’ve been able to produce a full Friday Update. We always try to publish the articles on any finds that have been sent in on the Friday of the week they are sent in even if we can’t do a full update. So, please do keep sending them in. We’ve a catch up this week with 21 Readers Finds including a very rare Penny of King Coenwulf of Mercia.

Plus in PAS Finds, there are two significant finds since our last issue: a Viking weight with a very rare Viking oval ring embedded in it and a penny of William of Aumale; only the third known example.

Plus in the news, the story of how detectorist Chris Weir found a gold ring after his wife encouraged him to keep detecting.
