St Ives museum asks detectorists to donate Roman and Tudor finds

A museum has appealed to two metal detector wielding treasure hunters to donate their amazing findings to their collection.

The Norris Museum in St Ives, which tells the story of Huntingdonshire through the centuries, has expressed its interest in exhibiting a Tudor silver gilt pin and Roman silver finger ring – both found in the fields of Somersham.

Senior coroner for South and West Cambridgeshire, David Scott Morris, presided over the two treasure trove hearings in Huntingdon yesterday, in which he heard about the finds and declared both items as British treasure.
