Team’s dug-up wonders to go on display

NEVER-SEEN before artefacts from an archaeological dig in Codnor are to go on display at Derby Museum this month.

Relics from a study of the Codnor Castle ruins in 2007 are to be put on show in the city from January 28.

The items such as a Henry V gold noble coin and shards of Stamford ware pottery from the Middle Ages were dug up by members of Channel Four TV’s Time Team, which takes part in archaeological digs, and have been gathering dust in a back room at the museum for four years since the show.
