Anglo-Saxon gold hoard found!

One of my twitter friends pointed me to this story about an amazing discovery of Anglo-Saxon treasure!

Leslie Webster, former keeper at the British Museum’s Department of Prehistory and Europe, said: “This is going to alter our perceptions of Anglo-Saxon England as radically, if not more so, as the Sutton Hoo discoveries.

“(It is) absolutely the equivalent of finding a new Lindisfarne Gospels or Book of Kells.”

WOW! I can’t wait for photos. I’m jealous of everyone who lives close enough to see the treasure in person.

Update: Chris Hughes sent me a link to a photo set: Treasure Photos
