Published by Westmorland Gazette, written by Stephanie Manley, Thursday 26th July 2012

A TREASURE hunter unearthed a rare relic from the Middle Ages just a day after buying his first metal detector.

David Greenall, of Shore Road, Silverdale, had only been using the device for two hours when he uncovered a late Saxon silver and copper alloy mount near Carnforth.

The 38-year-old was out searching with friend Darren Webster, who made headlines last year when he found a Viking hoard near Silverdale.
