When a Stack Becomes a Hoard & Lost for 2,000 Years

Recommended Posts

We weren't the first stackers as this picture illustrates.
Many of us jokingly comment about burying our coins in the back garden.
Well there is no shame in that but when you forget about your buried treasure and your secret isn't shared then it can take 2,000 years for your ancestors to uncover your stack.

This batch was valued at around £10 million and I took the pictures during a visit a few days ago.








Happy metal detecting !

That's a nice hoard! I was in the national archaeology museum in Dublin a month or two back where they displayed some celtic and viking caches and hoards. Pretty  cool to see 2000-3000 y/o (gold) items like that, but I haven't seen something quite the size of this in person.
