On December 21, Paul Coleman, a member of the Weekend Wanderers Detecting Club, discovered a hoard of 5,251 coins. They were buried in a lead bucket in a field near Aylesbury. The coins include specimens dating to the 11th century, and an observer reported that they are in very good “almost uncirculated” condition; many bear the likenesses of King Æthelred the Unready and King Canute.
