Still Waters Posted February 3 #1 Share Posted February 3 (IP: Staff) · A group of amateur detectorists have hit gold after a hoard of more than 600 medieval coins worth an estimated £150,000 was officially declared treasure. The seven men used metal detectors to make the "miracle" discovery on the Culden Faw Estate in Buckinghamshire in April 2019. The find, nicknamed the "Hambleden Hoard", saw them spend four days unearthing 627 coins, including 12 rare full gold nobles from the reign of Edward III at the time of the Black Death in the 1300s. It is the biggest gold and silver collection to be discovered in the UK for about a decade. The hoard was unearthed by detectorists Andrew Winter, Dom Rapley, Eryk Wierucki, Jaroslaw Giedyna, Dariusz Fijalkowski and brothers Tobiasz and Mateusz Nowak. https://uk.news.yahoo.com/amateur-detectorists-gold-hoard-medieval-coins-treasure-105429816.html 4 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
