Six finds ranging in date from 800 BC to the 16th century have been declared treasure by H.M. Coroner for Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, Mr Mark Layton.
Experts from Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum Wales say the objects were all discovered by members of the public, and are of high significance as they will allow archaeologists to shine a light on lesser known parts of Wales’ history.
The six finds are:
- A hoard of three fragmentary Bronze Age socketed axes found in Kidwelly Community, Carmarthenshire
- A hoard of one hundred and five Roman coins found in Angle Community, Pembrokeshire
- A fragmentary Viking silver arm ring found in Jeffreyston Community, Pembrokeshire
- A medieval silver seal matrix found near St Dogmael’s, Pembrokeshire
- A 16th-century silver decorative gilt ring found in Manorbier Community, Pembrokeshire
- A post-medieval silver scabbard chape found in Camrose Community, Pembrokeshire
All the objects are being acquired by museums, with grant aid from the Saving Treasures; Telling Stories Project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
