NewsWebsite Update

Friday Update – 6 August 2021


The public offer of mediation talks between the NCMD Executive and the four regions in dispute was broadly welcomed. Progress towards organising this meeting appears to have hit a brick wall. For the sake of our hobby, let’s hope that this can be resolved.

I’ve had eight detecting finds in from readers this week for identification including a Edward IV groat in VF condition and a forgery of a James I double crown. In the PAS review is an Iron Age pot with mystery contents and a Roman stud used on a cremation casket.

A couple of Treasure items in the news. In Shropshire it is hoped that a hoard of Bronze Age axes will go on public display at Shrewsbury Museum as part of their new Bronze Age exhibition. It will join another detecting find, the Shropshire Sun Pendant, as I reported in last Friday’s update. In Norfolk, a Sutton Hoo era sword pyramid has been unearthed.
