Metal Detector Finds 840 Gold Coins Wickham Market Hoard Treasure

www.treasurebone.blogspot.com In 2008 a man using a metal detector found a hoard of 840 gold coins, this hoard has since become known as The Wickham Market Hoard. The Wickham Market Hoard contained coins that belonged to the Iceni Tribe and are believed to be from 40 BC to 15 AD. This would date these coins to Pre-Queen Boudicca the warrior queen who led the revolt against Roman Rule which destroyed Colchester in 60 AD. The Ipswitch Museum raised 300000 pounds to purchase the hoard and keep it in Suffolk, later this hoard will be visiting Colchester, Norwich and Cambridge. arolineMcDonald, curator, said ” Cambridge and Norfolk are part of the Iceni tribal heartlands, so essentially we’re sending the coins back to where they came from.” McDonald added “I like to think emotionally we’re all related to the Iceni because we tread in those places that they trod 2000 years ago.” Recently the Ipswitch Museum posted an opportunity for 50 people to help clean these coins in a free workshop. All 50 spots have already been filled. I imagine they filled quite quickly. McDonald said “We wanted our contemporary communities to experience the coins close up.” McDonald continued “It’s quite unusual for us to have members of the public in the conservation lab and even more unusual to have them around our treasure.” Emma Hogarth, conservation officer, said: “If they’re pure gold, they don’t decay, but as there is some copper in these ones, we do have a little bit of corrosion. It’s

    Please just speak your mind. Don’t search for the right word. If something chaps your hindquarters, squeak about it. I find your lack of forthright expression obtuse. Really, if you are going to comment, please be direct with vulgarities, don’t swallow down and keep inside your intrinsic distaste and anger.

    rule number one if you find a treasure dont report it, take it home asap and go to a private dealer. if they ask where you got it say it was in your grandmothers attic haha

    Well, sorry Scooter, we are the best. Read it and weep. You are better at cross country skiing, however, in the Netherlands.

    “America has become a third world shit hole full of idiots.”
    ______

    Well, not yet, but we are trying as the liberals that want everything paid for them take over our government & waste the money of the 51% that actually pay Federal income tax.
    But, we are far better off than Spain & France as they are being taken over by Muslims. I heard Spain is 25% Muslim. Just wait until they take over & start burning all the churches. There will then be a mass exodus of Christians. Want proof? Look at Iran.

  23. wayne290 says:

    I agree. What did the finder get for finding them? The story did not say. I will have to Google it.

  24. murf751 says:

    Omg I knew this was coming. I know… I suck so bad. I’m such a stupid American asswipe. Ya ya ya whatever. Bite me.
    We used to think we were the best. We were the best, and nobody can dispute that. Then, socialists like you came here from over seas, infiltrated every part of our government and media and destroyed us. I agree with you about the 3rd world though. America has become a third world shit hole full of idiots. If u think I suck, wait till you meet the rest of us here. Pff
