Almost any hoard is saturated with fear… Having amassed possessions, you are afraid all these things can be taken away from you. You might run away, but you can’t take it with you. After stealing something, you want to tuck it away. Or, when going on a hike, you don’t have anybody to entrust your inheritance into his care… In each case, when burying a hoard, people also dug their own fears along with it into the soil.
Would you like to unearth such a hoard? I wouldn’t. And other people’s panties aren’t the point. The hoard itself is really very sad. More discoveries, made with or without a metal detector, can always be found here. Happy hunting to everyone!
