Swedish boy finds Scads of Medieval coins


How psyched is that little guy eh? He and his grandpa were kicking around in Southern Sweden, checking out the site of the Battle of Lund, when he spotted some verdigris covered coins. It turns out there were a lot more where that came from.

This is probably the largest silver coin find in Sweden. The local heritage board came to the site later and found two clay vessels filled with more coins, 7,000 more. Apparently they are from England and Denmark, dating back to 1300 AD. This find may double the amount of English coins found in Sweden to date.

Enjoy a little numismatic news for your Monday morning,

Bp

I think we should keep the same view, and then in our understanding of this point, and then deeper thinking!
