Assistant director of UCL’s
Archaeology South-East, Louise
Rayner, told Cambridge News that
the archaeologists were expecting
to find something at the Soham site,
though they were surprised to find as
much as they did:

“The site was expected to con-
tain archaeological remains after a
large excavation immediately to the
south-east had previously uncov-
ered extensive evidence for the Late
Bronze Age, Iron Age and Roman
periods, but it was great to discover
such a range of artefacts.”

Following the Roman departure
from the area, Anglo-Saxons arrived
in Soham and surrounding areas
around 411 AD. It is believed they
probably re-used the Roman villas
they found.

In contrast, pottery vessels were
found at the Cambridge housing
development site, such as a rare
glass claw beaker (named due to
the claw-shaped handles which were
attached to the conical walls near the
stem of the vessel).

The History blog states these
“vases were very highly prized,
probably imported from Germany,
and have mainly been found as grave
goods in 5th and 6th century Anglo-
Saxon burials.” 

Cambridge News adds that
“These elaborate drinking vessels
are normally found further south east
such as in Kent, northern France, the
Netherlands and Germany.”

2,600-Year-Old Treasures
Reveal Their Secrets
The grave of an aristocratic woman
and child in the south of Germany
has been dated to 583 BCE, making
it 2,600-years-old.
The grave site, which was moved
to a lab in Stuttgart in its entirety
in order for the burial chamber to
be studied, contains the remains of
a woman adorned in gold, bronze,
amber and jet jewelry, and about
half a meter away from her, the
remains of a girl thought to have

ing, especially those in the volatile
region west of the Rocky Mountains.
According to local lore, a great
ship is stranded in California’s Salton
Sea Basin on the edge of the Sonora
Desert. Despite having no concrete
proof that such a ship actually exists,
there is a great deal of debate over its
possible origins.
Some say it is a Spanish galleon
that was searching for an alternative
way around “California Island” (a
common misconception in the 16th
century). This ship would naturally
be filled with treasure.
Others claim that the ship
belonged to early Viking explorers
who managed to navigate a Medieval
Northwest Passage and come down
the western coast of North America
before being stranded. The only way
we will ever know for certain is to
find the ship.
Rumors about a desert ship have
circulated for years. For this particu-
lar ship, the most concrete verifica-
tion of those rumors came in 1933.

Good Hunting!

Russell Page Has The 2016 ATU Find of The Year
AND

The 2016 Key Date Bill Coin of the Year

While John Moody swept all four of the February Find of the Month categories, Russell Page walked
away with the top prize in the Annual Find of the Year competition with his gold 1945 Iranian 1 Pahlavi coin
found in December as well as first place in the 2016 Key Date Bill competition for the best key date or semi-
key date coin. He won the latter with his 1912 S V nickel. And having won, he promptly insisted that John
Amato accept the Macayo’s Gift Certificate that comes with the Key Date Bill honor and have a meal himself
in memory of Bill Vidrine.

Second place in the 2016 ATU Find of The Year competition went to Albert Wilhelm for the Louis XIIII
and Louis XV coins that he found while on vacation out of state and which he also showed at the December
meeting.

Rounding out the list of Find of The Year prize winners was Vic Mathis who claimed third place with
the 1858 Flying Eagle cent first displayed at the August meeting.

Other entries competing for the coveted ATU Find of the Year award were, a 14 kt gold religious
medallion found by Ed Mabie, an 1875 Mexican Eight Reale piece entered by Scott Stewart, a 1 ounce gold
bracelet entered by John Dziegelewski, a Dial and Barr Saloon Token found by Dave Matthiessen, a 1952
Globe-Miami Mine Rescue Badge entered by Seth Carroll, a 2001 American Eagle silver coin found by Ron
Fink, a drone that John Amato found during our year end hunt, and a 14 kt yellow and white gold wedding
band entered by Dennis Martin.

key date US coin based on book values during the previous year. The
award is named for “Key Date” Bill Vidrine, a former president and
long time member of ATU who passed away in 2011. Bill, who had
been a good friend and long time hunting partner of John, was known
for his ability to find those elusive key date and semi-key date coins.
So when John was looking for a way to keep Bill’s memory alive, the
idea of offering an annual award for the best key date coin was a win-
ner. When John approached Bill’s family, which owns Macayo’s Mexi-
can Restaurant, with the idea, they insisted on including a gift certifi-
cate to Macayo’s as part of the prize....And this year’s winner, Russell
Page, decided that as much as he likes Macayo’s the real recipient of
the gift certificate should be John Amato (still not sure whether that’s
just because that’s the way Russell is (and he is) or because of John’s
emotional award presentation, or both.

For the record, according to CoinTrackers, there were 238,000
1912 S Liberty Head V nickels produced. The 1912 nickel was the only
Liberty Head V nickel to carry an S mint mark. A coin in average condi-
tion is valued at around $177 while a mint state coin could bring closer
to $2,000 at auction.
