Gold! Gold! Everywhere the glint of gold!

Well this morning we are all dribbling over the wonderful images from The Staffordshire Hoard -the largest haul of Anglo-Saxon treasure found in Staffordshire. Sadly it is nothing to do with our company but an old colleague of mine is working on it and well you can't help but marvel at their beauty can you? :o)

Pleased to find this here. Bought a paper yesterday to see pictures of the hoard but they were few and disappointing. Your photos here and the links make up for it.

It's amazing, isn't it? And to imagine that there are other hoards out there that may never be discovered but just lie where they were left.
