This guy found an artifact from the 10th century that contains treasures, received payment for it.
There are times in our lives that we see or receive things that we don’t expect. From the smallest to the greatest, things have its own story and sometimes have a huge part in history. Things we received from our loved ones are always what we value the most to preserve memories.
But for this treasure hunter, finding things buried on the ground is what he loved the most. Using a metal detector, they could find antiques and valuable treasures under the ground. If they are lucky enough, they will find a treasure that will give them great fortune.
One metal detectorist named Derek McLennan got a piece of artifact from the Vikings while digging in the land of Dumfries and Galloway. This artifact from the 10th century is very important in the United Kingdom.
It contains silver bracelets, brooches, rings, crucifix, and gold bird pin. He intended to bring it to the Queen and Lord Treasurer’s Remembrance to be examined by experts. According to them, it will be displayed at the National Museums of Scotland but they have to pay Derek about £ 1.98 million. He found about 100 pieces of precious artifacts.
Unlike in the countries under the United Kingdom, the law in Scotland is good and different. When a person found a valuable artifact, the owner and the person who found it will share for the amount they will received. While in Scotland, the person who found it will be the only one who will received the payment in full.
