Here's some good news, from the BBC story: "We ended up in this particular field, we got a really strong signal from the detector... Eventually we found this cup containing the coins and told the antiquity authority."

So the provenance may well be preserved to the satisfaction of later researchers.

I bookmarked M & C. I wish they had "Related Links" from their stories, like the BBC.

'Some coins from Afghanistan.' Conforms with stories of Viking trade with and possible settling in Asia and other places. "Russia" is said to come from rus, meaning 'ruddy, redhaired people who kick butt; don't mess with them'. Happy

If the date is correct, it's about a century before another ex-Scandinavian, William I, invaded the same island, and everything changed.

No doubt it was plunder and I'm sure
