Hoard Loot

The Staffordshire Hoard, a small selection of which is currently on display in the British Museum, has been valued by the Treasure Valuation Committee at £3.285 million. The money will be shared between Terry Herbert, the metal detectorist who discovered the hoard, and Fred Johnson on whose land it was found. Should be a pleasant Christmas ahead for the pair of them, whose services to the study of Anglo-Saxon England are incalculable.
