Dan Stevenson a builder from Reading had no idea how his luck was going to
change when he attended a metal detecting dig organised by the Southern
He was trying Gary's new XP Deus Sifter program when he got a big signal, he dug
down to recover a piece of lead. But like all professional metal detectorists he
re checked his hole to hear another target.
Dan dropped to his knees and recovered some more soil using his hand held
digger, as he placed the spoil onto the side of the hole he noticed some Silver
Dan immediately knew these were Silver Roman Denari.
Acting according to the UK treasure act laws he stopped digging and notified the
dig organisers, who in turn notified the local archaeology teams.
The hole was covered up and they returned the next day with the Archaeologists
to document and carefully recover the hoard.
Dan was given full permission to recover the coins under close supervision, I
believe there was around 180 in total.
The media team from XP metal detectors were on site and captured the complete
event on film.
