Pennies from Heaven

The industrial archaeologist set
out his grid on a portion of the
top floor of Murray’s Mills and
went off for lunch. When he
came back a bit of the ceiling
had fallen in over the grid and
on the top of the pile, shining,
was an old penny from the year
the building was constructed.
Chance favoured this young
archaeologist. I often wonder
how he will respond? I wonder
if he will reinstate the coin
entrusted to him when Murray’s
Mill is developed?
