500 year old treasure found in Sarratt

Post-medieval thimbles discovered by Sarratt metal detectorist

500 year old treasure found in Sarratt with a metal detector. The treasure was found after the metal detector owner agreed with the Sarratt landowner that he could search his land.

The remains of two post-medieval thimbles were discovered with a metal detector in June 2013.

The total weight of the remains was 4.4 grams and the some of the pieces still retain nail damage.

The thimble parts are currently at the British Museum and are waiting for an evaluation committee to determine how much they are worth.
