The late Roman, fifth century hoard found in Rhineland Palatinate a couple of weeks ago appears to have sparked the imagination of the international press. The story is still running. Nice to see that the Archaeological Institute of America has finally caught up, though at least it did not call it the Nibelungen treasure. There was a brief note in Archaeology yesterday - read it here.
The haul was found by a metal detectorist/looter next to a Roman road near Rülzheim and only discovered when he started to sell the pieces on the black market.
The meat and potatoes remains in the German press. Yesterday the discussion was about the legal status of Benny C, the metal detectorist who, it is claimed found the treasure. He is pretty much going to get off with only a slap on the wrist. In Rhineland Palatinate, such looting is a misdemenour (eine Ordnungswidrigkeit).
There is a nice touch of Schadenfreude in the reporting which suggests that he would have been able to claim a hefty finders fee had he reported the find straight away. The Focus report is here. See previous discussion here and here.
