Datebook: November 16 - Metal Detectorist Finds Jackpot 20 Years Ago
Being that guy with a metal detector paid off big time for Eric Lawes, who was merely looking for his friend's lost hammer when he discovered the Hoxne Hoard, one of the largest hoards of Roman gold and silver in the world. The collection valued at over $4.2 million (today) and was purchased by the British Museum. We're pretty sure the hammer is still out there.
