Man finds a Viking treasure – level 2

17-10-2014 15:00

A man from Scotland found a great treasure. He found Viking artefacts that are worth one million pounds. He found more than 100 things. They are from the 9th to 10th centuries.

The man used to be a businessman. Now, he is an amateur treasure hunter. This was not his first big discovery. He found 322 old coins in a field earlier this year.

Experts from Scotland arrived at the field of his discovery within hours. They want to start to dig there and try to find more objects.

Difficult words: treasure (a quantity of gold, coins, gems etc.), artefact (an object which is historically interesting), used to be (were).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
