Watch Another Treasure Hoard of Gold and Silver Found In Staffordshire

- 702-987-1332 Last month, a team of archaeologists and experienced metal detectorists from Archaeology Warwickshire returned to the same field in Staffordshire, UK, where in 2009 metal detectorist Terry Herbert discovered a hoard containing over 3900 pieces of gold, silver and copper alloy objects. The team decided to revisit the field after it was ploughed. In doing so they discovered another treasure which contains around 90 pieces of gold and silver. The finds include what appears to be a cheek guard from a golden helmet, an eagle and a cross among other unidentified pieces. Many of the pieces are quite small, weighing less than a gram. 'While it is far too early to say exactly what they are, or how old they are, they are certainly interesting finds.' Said Staffordshire County Council Leader Philip Atkins. The South Staffordshire Coroner, Andrew Haigh will rule at an inquest planned for January 4 if the metalwork pieces are part of the Anglo Saxon collection and if they should be declared treasure. Terry Herbert, discoverer of the 2009 Staffordshire hoard and land owner Fred Johnson could be in for another payday if in fact these new items are declared treasure and part of the 2009 Anglo Saxon collection. The two men split the money from the 2009 find which was valued at £ 3.3 million. Though Herbert calls the 2009 discovery cursed and blames it for destroying his friendship with Johnson. The pair have since fallen out over the cash from the 2009 discovery, with Herbert claiming Johnson, the land owner wanted it all for himself.
