Friday Update – 23 April 2021

Editorial

Another 10 detecting finds in this week, including Bronze Age and Anglo_Saxon artefacts. There’s also a story of how a civil war ring, found on the Isle of Man in December last year, is linked to a chair in a pub in Bolton.

The PAS review has an unusual, possibly multi-purpose handle and a rare Anglo-Saxon halfpenny.
