Metal detectorist finds Viking era ‘piggybank’ in Isle of Man field

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A Viking era "piggybank" of silver coins has been discovered on the Isle of Man by a metal detectorist who made another startling discovery last year.

The 1,000-year-old pieces were found by former police officer Kath Giles in a field in the north of the island.

Details of the 87 coins, which were found in April, were made public for the first time at a coroner's hearing.

The coins were minted in England, Dublin, Germany and the Isle of Man.

Ms Giles previously made headlines when she discovered a collection of gold and silver Viking jewellery, which was declared treasure in February.
