Astonishing Anglo-Saxon hoard of decorated gold and silver

by Ziks511 / September 28, 2009 12:31 PM PDT

sword mounts and pins and jewellery discovered. The result of the Staffordshire land owner using a new plough which dug about 8 inches into the soil and scraped and slashed through the collection spreading it all over the field. This may be the largest Anglo-Saxon treasure hoard that has ever been found, surpassing Sutton Hoo in 1939. There are few workers of metal or jewelry or enamel to equal the Anglo Saxons, and this is an extraordinary collection of some 1500 pieces. There'll be lots of new discoveries around this find.
