Here's something that srikes me as odd....
"Here's a chance to own a piece of history as identified by the Time Team
big Royal dig whilst digging in the garden of Buckingham Palace (the queens
back garden.) This is a 1 inch copper stud from around 1640 claimed by the
Time Team to be part of a royalist (Charles 1st) or parliamentary (Cromwell)
Civil war soldier's uniform, the stud was one of only a hand full of items
found on this time team dig".
How did this person get hold of this item, and does the landowner know they
are selling it? Where are the proceeds going? Are the TT rewarding dig
volunteers and helpers with spare finds maybe?
Is the seller [karltonw123] a member of the Time Team, or do they have their
blessing flogging off finds apparently /purportedly from excavations in "the
Queen's back garden"?
He also sells digging tools for metal detectorists and bottle dump stuff....
Anyone know what is going on?
