Et pendant ce temps là (UK)...


Encore un truc quasi-impossible en France... tout simplement parce que déclarer une trouvaille faite au détecteur relève du parcours du combattant et qu'on risque plus d'emmerdes que d'autres choses.
Madame la Ministre de la Culture devrait prendre connaissance de ce genre de chose au lieu d'avoir une confiance aveugle dans ses fonctionnaires ayatollah anti-UDM.

Hoard of 8,000 Roman Coins Found by Treasure Hunter
July 16th, 2016 by Shaquille Brissett

There are times when persistence pays off in a big way. This turned out to be exceedingly true for one treasure hunter from Altrincham, a small British market town in Greater Manchester.

It was January of 2015, and Cheshire, a county in the northwest portion of England between Manchester and Liverpool, was experiencing some exceptionally cold temperatures. Treasure seekers Ronald Lees and his friend Rick Parker circled the Cheshire field for the fourth time, and for the fourth time they came up empty. They grit their teeth to endure the freezing rain that beat against them. This is where normal men would have given up, but the two decided to make one more trip round, that’s when they heard it.

The metal detector started like an alarm clock and the sixty-two-year-old Lees sprung into action. “I started scraping with a trowel,” he said, “a coin flipped up, followed by another and another—they were just coming out of the ground.”

The adventures in treasure hunting began when Lees was in his twenties but he would go on hiatus in the decades to follow. But when he made his return only three years ago he never imagined that he would unearth dozens of bronze coins from ancient Rome. If that wasn’t enough, Lees—with the help of archaeologists provided by the Finds Liaison Officer—would discover 7,800 more coins in that very location!

Last week, an inquest was held at the Macclesfield Town Hall wherein the deputy Coroner for Cheshire, Alan Moore, declared the coins legal treasure.
“It is an absolutely amazing find,” said Moore to Lees. “It must have made your day. I wish you every luck in your metal detecting in the future.”


Museums have the ability to lay claim to treasure finds, but it is up to the Treasure Valuation Committee to determine the worth of the hoard and decide how much compensation the finder will receive.
Lees’s interests, however, transcend mere financial gain. “The last person who held the coins could have been a Roman Emperor, a gladiator or a serf,” he said excitedly.

According to the British Museum’s Richard Abdy the hoard contains the following:
1,902 coins from the reign of Tetricus I
745 coins from the reign of Tetricus II
1,670 coins from the reign of Victorinus AD 269-71
899 coins from the reign of Gallienus, AD 260-8,
599 coins from the reign of Claudius II, AD 268-70
354 coins from the reign of Posthumus, AD 260-9
And over 1,000 other coins

Abdy revealed that the coins are similar to many of the Romano-British coin hoards that were buried after the rebellion of the Gallic Empire, and range in date from AD 251 to 274.
