Norman coins may be worth thousands

A HOARD of 178 Norman coins found in a field near Knaresborough could land a share of thousands of pounds for a group of amateur treasure hunters.
The discovery was made by 15 members of the West Riding Detecting Group during four separate visits to the site - which has not been identified - over a year-long period from April 2008.

The collection of rare Henry I silver coins, which date from between 1100 and 1135, is thought to be the first of its kind in the country.

Classifying the find as treasure at an inquest on Wednesday, Coroner Rob Turnbull did not disclose a valuation.
