A Roman enamelled gold ring has been found by a metal detectorist on a “charity” dig held on a known site at Crewkerne where a rare Roman lead-lined coffin had been found.

.

Permission for the event had been given on the basis it was “for charity” so the detectorist will be donating his share of any proceeds or reward to the charity.

We presume.


PS The finder has just confirmed he will NOT be giving his half to the charity.  So the same as all the hundreds of other “charity metal detecting rallies” then.
