There aren't many people I am jealous of in life. Jealousy isn't a good thing. Right?? Wrong! I am jealous of those people who have managed to find a hoard, and I haven't even though I've been Metal Detecting for 30 years. Don't get me wrong, I'm not jealous in a nasty way. The way that makes you bittered and twisted. In fact two hoards I can think of right now, couldn't have happened to nicer people (Burton and Stafford Hoards), but I'd dearly love to find one.
