England….Kett’s Rebellion: ‘Hidden’ coin hoard declared treasure….


_64472235_kettscoin_300
==============================================================================
A hoard of coins minted during Henry VIII’s reign and found by a metal detector enthusiast in a Norfolk field may have been buried to keep it safe during Kett’s Rebellion in 1549.
=============================================================================
The 14 silver groats, found in a field in Wymondham, were pronounced treasure by coroner William Armstrong in Norwich.

Kett’s Rebellion during the reign of King Edward VI started in Wymondham.

The hoard was found in April 2011 by Steven Clarkson and Mark Turner.
Peasant protest

Objects which could qualify as treasure must be reported to the coroner under the 1996 Treasure Act .

Dr Adrian Marsden, of the British Museum, said in a report to the coroner it is “quite likely they (the coins) were hidden during the Kett uprising in July and August 1549”.

He said the coins “probably represent a small proportion of the hoard originally concealed”.

A valuation committee will decide on the value and compensation to be paid to the finder and landowner.
The rebellion started in Wymondham after a small group of peasants got together to protest against rich robber barons who had stolen the common land, leaving the peasants to starve.

Led by Robert Kett, the peasants marched 10 miles into Norwich and gathered on Mousehold Heath, attracting the support of the poorer people of Norwich.
Some 15,000 rebels eventually gathered and their battles against government forces on the streets of Norwich led to a national crisis.

They were finally defeated by an army of 13,000 men commanded by the Earl of Warwick.

Hundreds of peasants were killed and 300 were captured and executed in the city. Kett himself was imprisoned and later hanged from the battlements of Norwich Castle.

Sixpence from 1652 sells for $430K……..



=============================================================================
A silver Colonial Massachusetts coin from 1652 that was found in a potato field has been auctioned for $430,000.

Newsday (http://bit.ly/XI1XCN) reports that an East Hampton, N.Y., woman found the coin 23 years ago with a metal detector.

It garnered four times as much as auction officials expected. It was sold last week at the Colonial Coin Collectors Club in Baltimore.

The coin is one of eight known to exist.

It was first auctioned in 1992 by Lillian King and sold to an auction house for $35,200. The man who ended up buying the coin from the auction house resold it last week for the large sum.

King tells the newspaper that she wishes she had waited to sell the coin.

Bronze Age pot contains 21 axe heads…..



==============================================================================
England…Isle of Man…..Ken Rive, a member of the Jersey metal detecting society, made the find in a field in Trinity last month.

Two axe heads have been removed from the pot and examined by staff at Cranfield University.

They found they contained a lot of lead, which suggests the 3,000-year-old axes were not functional tools but objects of prestige, researchers said.

With almost 55% of the axe being made of lead the axe would not have had a very sharp edge.

Five major finds of Bronze Age tools, weapons and jewellery have been uncovered in Jersey between 1836 and 2001. It is thought the islands may have been a staging post for traders.

Jersey Heritage plans to remove the remaining axe heads from the pot and examine all 23 to learn more about them and life in Jersey 3,000 years ago.

Metal Detecting…Isle of Man….Bishop’s seal found in field goes on display at museum…



============================================================================
The medieval seal matrix is thought to date back to the 1300s.

A 14th century Bishop’s seal discovered by metal detector enthusiasts will go on display at the Manx Museum for the first time on Saturday.

The silver seal, which was discovered by Andy Falconer, is described by historians at Manx National Heritage (MNH) as “incredibly significant”.

Curator of archaeology at MNH, Allison Fox, said: “It is a very rare find and an important part of Manx history.”

The find was made in a field in the north of the island.

A ndy Falconer made the “once in a life time discovery” when out searching with fellow treasure hunter Rob Farrer.

The 47-year-old said: “I had no idea what it was at first but when I showed Rob his eyes lit-up.”

Mr Farrer, 59, a metal detectorist for 30 years, said: “I couldn’t believe it. I honestly think it is the most important object to be found in the Isle of Man this century and certainly the only one of its kind.”
The seal itself is about three centimetres in length, made of silver, and shows two figures sitting facing out and a third kneeling in prayer.

Around the edge there is an inscription in Latin, which translates as “Let the prayers to God of Germanus and Patricius help us”.
Ms Fox said: “Saints were very important people for the whole island.
“The Isle of Man has lots of artefacts from the Viking period and a few hundred years after but a find from this period is rare.

“Most of our information for this period comes from manuscripts rather than artefacts.”

Dorset’s Iron Age Grave Mirror to be sold……



=================================================================================
An Iron Age mirror discovered by a metal detectorist in Dorset has been put up for sale.

The finely decorated Chesil Mirror and a number of other items were discovered in a grave between Abbotsbury and Chickerell in 2010.

Dorset County Museum is hoping to raise £23,000 to buy the artefacts for its collection and prevent them from being taken overseas.

The money would be split between the finder and the landowner.

The copper-alloy mirror is similar to the Portesham Mirror – already part of the museum’s collection – which was acquired in 1994. Fewer than 30 of its type have been discovered in the UK.

The grave, which dated back to the Roman Conquest, contained a body buried in a crouched position, two brooches, an armlet, copper tweezers, coins and glass beads.

The hoard was declared treasure in August 2011 and the price was set by the government in April 2012.

The skeleton, as human remains, has no monetary value and is currently at Bournemouth University but will be reunited with the other artefacts when they are sold.

Museum director Jon Murden said: “These rare and fascinating objects are significant because they tell us so much about power and wealth in Iron Age Dorset.”

The museum has until the end of the year to raise the money.

Enormous Roman Mosaic Found Under Farmer’s Field….



===================================================
A giant poolside mosaic featuring intricate geometric patterns has been unearthed in southern Turkey, revealing the far-reaching influence of the Roman Empire at its peak.

The mosaic, which once decorated the floor of a bath complex, abuts a 25-foot (7-meter)-long pool, which would have been open to the air, said Michael Hoff, a University of Nebraska, Lincoln art historian and director of the mosaic excavation. The find likely dates to the third or fourth century, Hoff said. The mosaic itself is an astonishing 1,600 square feet (149 square meters) — the size of a modest family home.

“To be honest, I was completely bowled over that the mosaic is that big,” Hoff told LiveScience.
The first hint that something stunning lay underground in southern Turkey came in 2002, when Purdue University classics professor Nick Rauh walked through a freshly-plowed farmer’s field near the ancient city of Antiochia ad Cragum. The plow had churned up bits of mosaic tile, Hoff said. Rauh consulted other archaeologists, including experts at the local museum in Alanya, Turkey. The museum did not have funds to excavate more than a sliver of the mosaic, so archaeologists left the site alone.

Last year, with a new archaeological permit for the site in hand, museum archaeologists invited Hoff and his team to complete the dig.

So far, the researchers have revealed about 40 percent of the mosaic. The floor is in “pristine” condition, Hoff said in a university video about the dig. It would have fronted an open-air marble swimming pool flanked by porticos.

The mosaic itself is composed of large squares, each sporting a unique geometric design on a white background, from starburst patterns to intertwined loops. It’s the largest Roman mosaic ever found in southern Turkey, which was thought to be rather peripheral to the Roman Empire, according to Hoff. The existence of the mosaic suggests that Antiochia ad Cragum was far more influenced by the Romans than believed, Hoff said.

The city of Antiochia ad Cragum, founded in the first century, has a number of Roman features, including bathhouses and markets.

Hoff’s team has also been excavating a third-century Roman temple in the city and a street lined with colonnades and shops.

The team will return with students and volunteers to complete the mosaic excavations in June 2013. Ultimately, Hoff said, the plan is to construct a wooden shelter over the entire mosaic and open the site to public visits.
