There's a brief mention of coins found there, but interestingly, the coins are from six centuries prior! Hmm!Exciting archeological finds dating back to the seventh century have been ruled to be treasure during five separate inquests at Teesside Coroners. Court.
Experts have described the finds as .unparallel in the North East. after historians discovered 109 graves near Loftus from around 650AD - one of which is thought to have contained the body of a princess.
Though the acidity in the soil means the remains no longer exist, dozens of high status items have stood the test of time including brooches, pendants, glass beads, pottery, and coins dating as far back as 43AD.
Interesting story, but the photo of the archaeologist creeps me out. -Editor
