Fortune hunters and hobbyists have found dozens of buried treasure troves in Worcestershire since records began seven years ago, figures reveal.

The British Museum says the scale of artefacts unearthed across the country exceeds expectations, with reported finds showing "little sign of dipping anytime soon."

Gold diggers, metal detectorists and mudlarks made eight discoveries in Worcestershire last year, statistics from the Museum and Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport show.
In February, the Worcester News reported that a team of metal detectorists found a hoard of rare 17th-century coins in a field near Malvern.

The diggers, from a group called KC Rallys, were scouring the field for artifacts when Garry Williams alerted his companions to his discovery of 51 silver shillings and sixpences depicting William III and dating back to 1697.
