The Thomas Becket Pilgrim Badge
« on: July 17, 2017, 09:08 »

In the Middle Ages the Church encouraged people to make pilgrimages to special holy places called shrines. Detectorists often find mementos of their visit all those years ago. Today, the pilgrims would probably tale a ‘selfie’ and proudly post it on FaceAche … together with the meal they devoured in a nearby restaurant.
