A TREASURE trove of historic rarities was revealed last week when amateur archaeologists showed off their finds.

Residents were invited to Mildenhall Library last Thursday to take along their unearthed relics.

Members of Suffolk County Council’s archaeology team were on hand to size up the artefacts and spot any stand out pieces.

Finds included Victorian coins, a pan from a pair of scales and a Bronze Age axe.

Jane Carr, finds recording officer for Suffolk County Council, said: “These events are about helping people who already have the history bug so we can foster that enthusiasm.

“All these items are for everybody to see - not just for people’s individual collections.”
