Chance to get your ‘treasure’ identified
AMATEUR archaeologists, avid metal detector enthusiasts and lucky gardeners are encouraged to take along any archaeological finds they may have to Mildenhall library next week.
Archaeologists from Suffolk County Council will be on hand to help identify finds brought to them.
There will also be an archaeological display at the library in Chestnut Close, to supplement the event, which is on Wednesday between 3.30pm and 4.30pm.
With the recent high profile Suffolk find of a medieval gold ring in a field in Mildenhall declared treasure at an inquest last month, it is hoped that the event will bring to light some interesting finds.
