Re: Britain’s first ever Viking helmet discovered

Just a couple of miles from me, and Preston park I’ve visited a thousand times ,
That helmet has never been on display that I can ever remember... and I would of remembered.

If I thought they would actually display it, they could have my Saxon sword and 2 shield boss’s on long term loan

Check out the nokta simplex , brand new at £299.
Many experienced detectorists have bought them and use them with great results.
Your not far away having £200, wait a bit longer and save up

Re: Saxon king could sell for £15,000 at auction

“ It had been expected to sell at auction in London for £15,000 but went under the hammer for £32,000.

With auction house fees added on the total price paid by the buyer was £41,200.“
