13th Century coins haul dug up on farmland


A HAUL of coins dating back to the 13th Century has been discovered on a farm in the region.
Amber’s Digs, a metal detector group, made the discovery while searching land at Sutton Bank, near Thirsk, North Yorkshire, on Good Friday.
The find consisted of 22 Edward I coins and one Richard I coin and was unearthed by about ten members of the 30-strong group who were out searching an area of about 25sq metres.
Sue Jewitt, 57, who runs Amber’s Digs with her partner, Graham Duff, said it was the first time the group had found a haul, which is believed to be from a purse or a stash that was never collected.
