    Sweet artifacts!

    Didn't read the article, but now it's time to hand it over to the Queen. I mean fair is fair. She lets her subjects live on all her land, right? :(

    Americans oft have opins that Brits are ripped off by reporting finds - quite the contrary, you are rewarded and the find becomes a part of historical record.

    £24 was a huge amount of dosh back then, the average wage was 1d a day and it would take 240 of those to equal a pound. Interesting that they surmise that the gold was from a monastery that Henry VIII had destroyed because they and a very select few merchants would have been the only possible owners of gold coin in that era.

    That ring got my attention.

    One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
