10-year-old discovers treasure

 When Fionntan Hughes, age 10, of Northern Ireland was given a metal detector for his birthday in July, he could hardly wait to try it out. And the first time he did, he found a buried treasure -- the remains of a 300-year-old sword buried on the banks of the River Blackwater near his family home.

"I felt was a sword and it was just here. I didn't expect to find anything too big," he said. He had no idea what the mud-covered object might be until he dug it up, brought it home and cleaned it up. Experts have confirmed it is several centuries old.
