Casual treasure hunters have always dreamt of finding something of great value, but most have to be content with broken nails and rusting beer cans. But that fact changed for treasure-hunter David Spohr, who managed to unearth an extremely rare necklace.

The necklace belonging to the Bronze Age is one of the few ever discovered and early estimates peg the value at £20,000 ($33,600). David was on a routine hunt into the Tarrant Valley when he found the 3,500-year-old solid gold lunula – a chest ornament worn mainly by one of the Bronze Age chieftains, reported Daily Mail.

Surprisingly, David didn’t have to dig deep. The artifact was located just 10 inches below ground. The rare, near-perfect piece is currently being assessed by experts, but is thought to be worth around £20,000. Owing to the historic significance, it is unlikely that the necklace will be bought by a private collector. The artifact will most likely go to a British Museum.

Two ‘metal detectorists’ who unearthed a gold pocket watch near Agahgallon at the weekend are keen to reunite the historical timepiece with the family of its original owner. The watch, which is made of brass and ‘10 carat rolled gold’, was found in a farmer’s field at Colane Road on Saturday, January 21. While the glass face is smashed and parts of the watch are badly corroded, a quick clean-up revealed a vital clue to the identity of its original owner. “It was presented to a guy called James Campbell by the directors of Lipton Limited on his retirement after 50 years service in March 1943,” explained one of the metal detectorists, who didn’t want to be named. “I was doing a wee bit of research through the Business Directory of Lurgan and Lipton operated what must have been a tea company.“Because he had 50 years service, the guy must have started his employment with the company in about 1893. If he started work even at 14 then he must have been born about 1879.”The watch was made by a company called ADL, while the case is inscribed with the maker’s name Dennison.The local metal detecting enthusiast admits that he’s found “mostly a load of rubbish” over the years, but in this case he’s keen to reunite his latest find with the family of its original owner. “He (James Campbell) got presented with this gold watch in 1943 and I’m sure it was a pride and joy for him, so it must have caused him great distress when he lost it,” the man continued.“If it belonged to me or one of my relatives I would want it back. I’m sure after a bit of work by a good jeweller it could be fitted with a new mechanism and it would be something to cherish.”• Did you know James Campbell? Do you know his relatives? Are you a family member who would like more information about the watch? If so, please email the Lurgan Mail at news@lurganmail.co.uk

A hoard of more than 280 gold and silver coins from the time of the Roman invasion of 
Britain has been unearthed by two metal detectorists. Sean Scargill, of Harlaxton, and his brother-in-law Hugh Jenkins were in a field in Riseholme, near Lincoln, when they discovered 282 coins from the Iron Age.

Sean said he was aware of what the coins were because he had found one before. He said find was ‘historic’ because they were the earliest known coins to be used in Britain. Sean added: “I have been detectoring for four and a half year. I have been searching this site for that time. I have found Roman, Saxon and Viking artefacts before. But not much is known about the Iron Age tribes except from the coins they used. This is a significant find.” Sean, whose finds also include a bronze thumb from a life-size Roman statue now housed in the British Museum, says the coins are waiting to be valued. They are with the British Museum, but Lincoln’s museum will have first option to buy them with 50 per cent of that value going to the landowner and 50 per cent to Sean and Hugh.The coins were found earlier this year with fragments of a pot and include rare examples stamped with the names of local rulers living in the area in the years leading up to the Roman invasion of Britain in AD43.



Dr Adam Daubney, finds liaison officer at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “Many of the coins in the hoard are stamped with names of people that we believe were local rulers. These are some of the earliest personal names ever recorded from the region.”The discovery site is owned by the University of Lincoln, whose archaeologists have carried out a survey of the area to help answer questions about why the coins were buried. Professor Carenza Lewis, from the university, said: “It’s a find of national significance because it dates to the period of the Roman Conquest which transformed our country’s history.”
