What a discovery, that would be a once in a life time event.It`s also great that the two of them are able help in the rest of the dig.The young fella will remember that for ever, great stuff.

That's actually my ultimate detecting ambition . . . . . to find Viking treasure in Australia.

Would certainly put the cat among the archaeologists . . . . . .
