The ‘Treasure Trove’ Law:

The Treasure Trove Law dates back to the 12th century AD. This law allowed the King to lay claim to discoveries of gold and silver if the rightful owner could not be traced.

The law was revised in 1996 when it became known as the “Treasure Act” - which came into force in 1997.

 The new law applies to finds such as:

Any objects more than 300 years old (excluding individual coins) Which contain at least 10% gold or silver that have been found in England, Wales or Northern Ireland.

Groups of ten or more base metal coins, or groups of two or more gold or silver or prehistoric tools and weapons also qualify as Treasure Trove.

Quote from R.B. Sheridan:

 "Our ancestors are very good kind of folk but they are the LAST people I should choose to have a visiting acquaintance with".
