The treasure team are rubbish. I enquired when an acknowledgement/ certificate for a donated find would be sent out and was basically told they were too busy and I might get one in a couple of months if they get round to it. Only been 4 years since I handed the find in, and 12 months since we donated it so maybe I’m being unreasonable :thumbdown: Next time donation is suggested I’ll tell them to go swivel .
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

The museum that wished to acquire my find had not paid within time so I asked for it back - then they paid up! :?

I am not at all impressed, 6 months on and the Treasure report has still not even been approved. So in limbo if there is any museum interest until a month after whenever that finally happens? :thumbdown:

It does look a genius ploy with China to get the West to go for Net zero - and they completely fell for it! :?
