A sum of £150,000 (US$ 168,000) has been pledged to deep scan a hoard of mysterious artifacts found off England’s coast. The £150,000 grant from The Wolfson Foundation to the Historic England scientific and archaeological analysis center at Fort Cumberland in Portsmouth will pay for the analysis of a range of unidentified archaeological objects, presently obscured with rust deposits, with state-of-the art high resolution X-ray equipment.

According to a report in Portsmouth, Historic England will replace and upgrade their aging equipment at its Fort Cumberland X-ray facility with a new type of hi-resolution X-ray equipment, which will “play an important role in providing a cost-effective diagnosis of the condition of artifacts while advising the best possible treatment.”
