Yorkshire man searching for King John's treasure say artefacts found at Sutton Bridge site are another part of jigsaw puzzle
The man who is searching for King John’s treasure says the artefacts he has found are another part of the jigsaw puzzle.
Raymond Kosschuk (63) is 100% confident that he has found the treasure at an undisclosed site in Sutton Bridge.
The treasure was lost in October 1216 during King John’s ill-fated journey across the Wash, days before he died in Newark.
Mr Kosschuk discovered nails and eyelet while metal detecting the site last week.
He said: “It is another part of the jigsaw puzzle.
“These pieces look consistent for the period use.”
Mr Kosschuk has been researching the project for more than a year, and has picked up overwhelming evidence of the haul during recent tests at the Sutton Bridge site.
