Archaeologists and amateur metal detectorists are thoroughly scouring fields near Stary Czarnów, north-western Poland. It is here that hundreds of early medieval coins were hidden at a point in the past and scattered across the area by ploughing.

The experts suspect that the recently discovered silver islamic coins, minted between 5th and 8th century and parts of silver woman jewellery were part of a larger trove. The search is being conducted with use of metal detectors. The treasure might have been stored in some organic or pottery vessel. Last year the archaeologists managed to find over 100 coins and jewellery. This year already 30 new artefacts have been added to that number.
