Our next
public meeting:

A talk by
Don Allerston

on Monday
9th November,
7.30 pm, in
Gateacre Chapel, Gateacre Brow,

The recently-announced discovery of a hoard of gold and silver Anglo-Saxon 'war booty', under a field in Staffordshire, has drawn attention to the fact that there is still treasure to be found by those who go looking. Don Allerston will be talking about some of the other interesting finds - coins, jewellery, bars of gold and other valuables - which have been recovered from shipwrecks and elsewhere over the years. Don has made a special study of the subject; he describes his LOST TREASURE talk as 'a bit of fun' and he will be bringing along some objects for us to examine.
ALL WELCOME - Admission Free - Donations invited
