Friday Update: 25 February 2022

Editorial

It is always a great thrill when you have been searching for a coin or artefact and after years of searching it finally turns up. That happened to Bob Greenaway last week when after 25 years of searching he found his first Anglo-Saxon coin, which he kindly sent in. Michael Young sent in a penny of David I which although not much to look is a very interesting coin.

A couple of important recent detecting finds are coming up for auction in March. A gold thrysma, found this year, is in the same DNW auction as the leopard coin. The following week sees the sale of the Throckenholt Cross, which was found in 2019.

In PAS finds there are three significant Finds of Note, including an Iron Age cheekpiece, designed to keep a pair of horses running in parallel.

A little joke that I heard this week: my detecting friend said that he found a Land Rover. He said it was quite a discovery.
