This is one for the Odd Box, as our British friends say. Wild boars rooting
about the Slovakian woods uncovered a huge coin hoard. It was spotted by
some hikers who had the presence of mind to guard the treasure until
archaeological authorities arrived. The result was a nearly clean dig, and
some 1,600 gold and silver coins recovered, along with their container and
some cloth fragments.
You can read the whole story, including the possible historic reason for
the hoard, at http://www.thehistoryblog.com/archives/55013 .
