Treasure trove inquests to be held

Thu, 29 Mar 2012

Two metal detectorists will get to find out next week what will become of the artifacts they've unearthed.

Two treasure trove inquests are to be held at Douglas Courthouse.

One of the finds was a haul of over 60 silver coins. The other was a piece of silver

By law, someone who uncovers items believed to be treasure has to report the find to the Coroner.

An inquiry is then held to determine whether the objects are treasure trove and should belong to the Crown, or whether the finder has the right to keep them.

The two inquests will be heard at 3pm and 4pm on Monday 2nd April.
