What’s new in this issue?

This month's exclusive cover story features a highly significant Iron Age/Roman vessel hoard and showcases best practice when detectorists work hand in hand with archaeologists. Finder Jon Matthews, Mark Lodwick and George Whatley PAS Cymru report on this amazing discovery, the subsequent excavation and discusses how the community who buried the objects saw themselves after a violent conquest.

On July 30 the new category of Treasure comes into force so there is a comprehensive report on England’s existing and new categories of treasure, changes to the Code of Practice that sits alongside it and how it will affect all involved in processing treasure items. Other features to highlight in this issue are a beautiful Post Medieval seal ring, a posy ring restored and a rally report on the WDS weekender in Norfolk. There is also part two of Daniel Spencer’s Manticore field test and product news on the new Nokta Simplex new generation machines and the RUTUS Versa too.

There’s of course much more to inform and inspire you in this issue!
