Not the coins found

Archaeologists in Grimsby today discovered a horde of buried treasure. The site in Cartergate which is being re-developed for housing is in the vicinity of the 12th century St James Church. Stan Toogood head of archaeology at The University of Lincoln revealed that the horde consisting of some 1500 artefacts included swords, clothing, glass and coins.

This is a historic occasion for Grimsby and makes the town older than at first thought. The coins were in fairly good condition and some were dated 10 BC these were a terrific find continued Mr Truegood.

The archaeologists also found pieces of broken glass possibly bottles from the reign of Charles II as some had the figures of 1664 on them and were from France due to the words Kronenberg found on some pieces. We think they contained liquid as they had a strong smell of beer. The archaeologists have only another month to finish the dig before the developers move in.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
