Yes Keith :g50: I am hoping to hear more about it before that though :g43: Not sure if it was found on an organised dig by Adam & Lisa or on a private dig?

This could be one of the most significant coin hoards for a very long time.

They are very dedicated detectorists and seem to acquire some excellent sites.

Good luck to them.

An amazing find. Certainly the most important group ever of coins of Harold II and William I.

Adam and Lisa are a couple who have been making their mark for the last couple of years on the internet and also in the National magazines.
