300-year-old manuscript found in garage

(BBC) — An 18th Century Jewish manuscript found in a garage during a house clearance is expected to fetch a six-figure sum.

The rare Haggadah, a text used by Jews on the first nights of Passover, is thought to date back to 1726.

The handwritten text, painted on goat skin, was spotted in a cardboard soup box at a Bury home. The Jewish couple who lived there had recently died.
