The largest hoard of gold found in England, approximately 1,500 pieces, was recently discovered on a farm in Staffordshire by a man with a metal detector. The pieces are in excellent condition, and many are heavily decorated and inscribed. Read the article on the BBC website which includes slideshows and video, or visit The Staffordshire Hoard website. The items have also been posted on Flickr in beautiful detail.
