Men discover historic coins in Norfolk

Two men made an amazing discovery of silver coins dating back to the 16th century while using metal detectors on the outskirts of Norwich, a hearing has been told.

Gavin Bowen and Gary Barker found the 11 coins, dating back to 1553, while using their detectors in Spixworth.

A treasure trove inquest was conducted this week by Norfolk Coroner William Armstrong, pictured, who read from a report by Dr Adrian Marsden, of the British Museum.

Mr Armstrong said: “The coins were found while searching with metal detectors in the months up to September 2009.
