Friday Update: 3 November 2023


It’s one of those rare occasions where silver beats gold; two great readers’ finds this week – a silver groat of Edward IV (or Edward V or Richard III) and a gold half noble of Richard II.

The DCMS released some stats which showed that 2022 set a new record for Treasure finds, with detectorists making 96% of these important discoveries.

In PAS finds is a fairly ordinary gold posy ring with an unusual inscription. Is there any link to Robert Boyle, the famous scientist, and the plague?
