Read the story of a silver medievil hoard uncovered under a school playground by the caretaker who apparently had perission to metal detect the school, the hoard of 128 silver coins from the 15th to early 16th centuary are worth £11.000 and casified as treasure troth, the school was Warkworth Church of England at Warkworth, Northumberland.
The only thing i ever found in a school playground was rubbish.

There is, apparently, a Saxon burial ground under my school playground.

There are bits of a spitfire under our field from the ww2, Apparently the borders here at the time were told not to go anywhere near it, they all got bits of it and some are still in our archives.
2 old boys won the VC as well.
I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people.... I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort it self out.

I found a couple of 9 inch shell casings while digging up the flower beds in our Nursery.
Did a bit of research with the help of a war museum and found out there was an anti aircraft battery on a piece of land about 100 yards away, a block of flats stands there now.
Also found out this area was extensively bombed during WW2 hence the need for the AA battery, I donated the shell casings to the museum.
