Mike Smith finder of the Celtic Chariot is on The All Metal Mode UK Podcast TONIGHT LIVE @8pm


Parts of an Iron Age chariot found by a metal detectorist have been declared treasure by the Pembrokeshire coroner.

Mike Smith made the discovery in February 2018 on farm land in the south of the county.

The court at Milford Haven heard on Thursday the finds were part of the ritual burial of an entire chariot and that the site is now legally protected.

Mr Smith says the 2,000-year-old finds could be worth a “life-changing” six to seven figure sum.

National Museum Wales said it will now try to buy the treasure which will be independently valued.

The payment will be shared fifty-fifty between Mr Smith and the landowner.
