SOPHISTICATED CT SCANNING TECHNOLOGY NORMALLY USED BY RESEARCHERS FROM WMG AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WARWICK TO ASSIST HIGH TECH MANUFACTURING, HAS HELPED UNCOVER THE EXISTENCE OF A RARE SILVER COIN CALLED AN 'INDIO' DISCOVERED BY ARCHAEOLOGISTS INVESTIGATING A SHIPWRECK OFF THE COAST OF OMAN.

Over 2,800 artefacts were found in the wreck, including a bronze bell with an inscription dating back to 1498, gold coins from the era and an important bronze disc embossed with the "esfera armilar" -- a personal emblem of Dom Manuel I, the then-king of Portugal.
