Relic hunter gets golden reward
of its value. Maurice Richardson found the 2,000-year-old torc in February with a metal detector near his Newark home.
An inquest has now declared the artefact to be "treasure".
This means its estimated £100,000 value will be shared between Mr Richardson and Trinity College, Cambridge, who own the land where the torc was found.
Despite the fact he could soon be significantly richer, the metal detector enthusiast says the most important thing about his discovery is its historic value.
The location where the torc was found is being
kept secret ahead of anexcavation by archaeologists.
