They don't come much jammier than David Booth. The chief game warden at a Scottish safari park was out on his first treasure-hunt when four gold Iron Age neck torcs, dating from between the 1st and 3rd centuries BC, set his new metal detector bleeping to the tune of £1 million. He'll inherit a substantial part of that sum, under the treasure trove statutes of Scots law.
Found on private land near Stirling in September, the torcs were unveiled in November, when they were described as being of "European significance" and "the most important hoard of Iron Age gold found in Scotland to date." They most likely belonged to an important and powerful local leader, and were worn as a way of showing off his wealth, importance and ability to trade precious goods with the continent.
It's not yet clear where or when the torcs will go on display to the public - expect an announcement sometime early in the New Year.
