Possible Kilwa coin found in Arnhem land

A long time ago, I blogged about the problematical find of Kilwa coins in Arnhem land in the 1940s.

Well, now we have news of a possible find of another coin, this time in situ on one of the islands off Arnhem land, and as far as we can tell, roughly in the same location as the find in the 1940s.

If it does turn out to be a coin, it helps show that the coins really did get there, but of course still doesn't answer the question of how they got there ...
