Discovering £350,000 of National Treasure with my Metal Detector

20 November 2008 amateur metal detectorist made what was described yesterday as the best archeological find of its kind in half a century, when he stumbled upon 'national treasure' in the form of an iron age gold collar worth more than £350,000 in a muddy field in Nottinghamshire.

Nearly identical to a piece already in the British Museum, it is heralded as the most astonishing of 1,257 finds reported over the last three years. Besides making a pretty penny for Richardson and the landowner where the gold collar was found, I have also discovered a new found passion: crawling in muddy fields for the rest of my life with hopes of changing my life.  Any Hot UK Deals for Metal Detectors going on?
