A trove of over 1,000 coins dating to the English Civil War has been discovered in a field near the British village Ewerby, according to a report from Lincolnshire County Council. The coins are relics from a time long past, with the most recent being from 1643. While a buried pot originally held them, they were reportedly found distributed throughout the soil.

And I get excited if I find a pre-1963 quarter. But then again I lead a rather sad life.

Probably the most exciting thing to happen in Ewerby for a few years.

Do the fellow who found the coins and the farmer who owns the land get to keep any of the coins?

I believe the Crown gets half.

These days the finder gets half and the landowner gets half.
