Our lead story this month is amazing Roman figurine of Mars which has been designated as a find of National Importance. It’s in stunning condition and was potentially buried as a votive offering. We also showcase a hattrick of gold finds which include a beautiful gold thimble decorated with turquoise stones. In Treasures of our Past we feature some beautiful finds from the Bronze Age through to the Medieval period and Andy Carter advises on how to increase your finds rate. There’s of course much much, more in this issue!
