Have you ever seen people using their metal detector at the beach?
Their hobby is looking for coins or other items of possible interest. I wouldn’t be interested in doing it here but if I lived in England, well now, that’s a whole other story.
Every day in England people find items from the past buried in the soil under their feet. The photo below is from the Snettisham hoard. Between 1948 and 1973, 11 different hoards were found. They all contained torqs – circular necklets made of gold or silver. All the ones pictured below are gold, and very elaborate gold at that.
