Jason Massey, a hobbyist treasure hunter, was scanning the area of Crewkerne when his metal detector started beeping like crazy. It was obvious that he'd found something but what happened next isn't something that he'd ever expected to happen to him. What he found by mistake ended up in the British Museum in London!
We don't often regard hobbyist treasure hunters' findings as serious and archaeologists surely agree with this. But this amateur treasure hunter was spending his afternoon with his metal detector when this happened.
