Sussex fishermen turned treasure hunters

Published by The Argus, written by Neil Vowles, Monday April 9th 2012

“Fishermen could find a new profession as treasure hunters.

English Heritage is launching a year-long pilot scheme in Sussex this month in an attempt to create an ordered log of historical finds uncovered by the fishing community.

The heritage group is working with Sussex Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority and the 300 fishermen setting out from Sussex ports every day.

It is estimated that historical finds are being made by fisherman every day and that up to 1,000 finds a month could be unearthed.” – taken from article
