Fantastic find - the size, the history and everything else - thanks for sharing.

Now, why can't stuff on this side of the water go through the process quicker?

Timeline :

Time scale for Post-Medieval silver vervel which went through the Treasure act of 1996.

Found 7th July 2013

Handed in to FLO 22nd July 2013

22nd July 2013 FLO informs County Coroner of Potential Treasure item with a specialist report to follow.

11th November 2013 County Coroner receives specialist report from the BM.

21st November 2013 I attend an inquest.

14th February 2014 a letter from the BM, the County Coroner declares the item to be Treasure.

TVC met on the 14th March 2014 to value the item.(TVC only meet every quarter)

27th March 2014 BM writes to offer 1,700 for the hawking ring.

I met with the landowner the following week to let him decide if the offer was acceptable, he was happy with the offer and a joint letter was sent by me to the BM to accept their offer.

 5th May 2014, BM requested bank details for payment.

Timeline: (and this isn't by far the worst case here)

Items found Dec 2012

Reported to museum within 24 hours

Handed to museum within 7 days, with everything identified and weighed, with diagram indicating find positions, plus photographs of find site.

Report apparently written in draft (maybe) end of 2013 / beginning of 2014

Archaeological investigation of site November 2013.

No coroner in Cardiff - no date set.


I know of cases over here lasting 3 or 4 years.

In my case I feel bad that the farmers don't have any visibility as to what is happening beyond what I've been able to find out.

Not quite sure why an archaeologist would want to visit the site?

In relation to where the item was found all I give is the minimum requirements to stay within the law.

Our local FLO and the two coroners that I come under, different farms fall under two different area coroners, I can't praise them enough.

i think you did superbly mate.i found a hawking ring which i thought at first was a washer without my glasses.looking at it with a magnifying glass it said tho(thomas) salwey-reverse of throckmoreton.i was paid after an inquest 500.00pounds by the museum to be split with the landowner.so i think you've done very well my freind.

Well given that it was a hoard and there might have still be items there as no 'pot' was found. I've got no problem with our local FLOI should add - and also given that with a similar case in north Wales they were out the next day doing and investigation......
