People in the UK found more than 47,000 old objects. People used metal detectors to find old coins and other treasure. Metal detecting is good during coronavirus because social distancing is easy. People put photos of the coins on the museum's website. The U.K. Culture Minister said: "It is brilliant to see."

Someone found 50 South African gold coins near London. Another person found gold and silver coins with the faces of British kings. These coins were from the 16th century. Another person found ancient Roman furniture from AD 43-200. It had the face of the god Oceanus on it. These are important for understanding Britain's past.
