Two 16th century silver pins discovered just miles apart


TWO silver pins – probably made in the same workshop about 500 years ago – were discovered seven miles apart in South Gloucestershire by metal detector enthusiasts.
The finds, which date back to Tudor times, were made on farmland in Tytherington and Aust by metal detectorists within four months of each other.
At an inquest where the pins were officially declared treasure yesterday, Avon's assistant deputy coroner Terry Moore said it was a "tremendous coincidence" the items had been found within such a short time of each other.
