Another Cob Found by Terry S.

Thanks for sharing Terry.

There were other cobs found in December and some other things I plan to show.


Nice Collection of 16th Century Gold Items Found by Detectorists.

Here is a collection of small gold decorative items found by detectorists on the banks of the Thames over a period of years.  It is thought they could all be from the same ornate hat.

Here is the link for that story.

It is nice when related items can be assembled into a cohesive meaningful collection.  That is one thing the Antiquities Scheme accomplished in this case.


Can you believe we are coming to the end of 2015?  Sees like not very long ago I was talking about starting a new year.  Time flies.

It looks like there won't be any improvement in beach detecting conditions for the next week or so.  The wind will be mostly from the southeast and the surf will be around three feet.

Happy hunting,
