Lenborough Hoard Roundup

There has been a lot of interest in the posts on the Lenborough Hoard 'excavation' recently. Today the PAS FLO responsible for its excavation has returned from her Christmas vacation and perhaps we will soon learn the fuller details of the circumstances surrounding this event than have been available from reading the detecting forums and blogs and watching videos taken at the time. Here is a breakdown of what has been written here so far on this on a timeline.

Dec 21st 2014 (Sunday): hoard reportedly found in the late morning deeply stratified on a grassland earthwork site, the subject of a Weekend Wanderers commercial artefact hunting rally. Hoard 'excavated' and tipped out on a kitchen table by the evening.
