Terry Herbert, 55-year-old amateur archaeologist from Staffordshire found near his home on the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon date, gold and silver jewelry. Terry did not use anything other than the old metal detector. With it was found more than 1,500 jewelry - 5 kg of gold and 2, 5 kg of silver owned by the Saxon royal family and belonging to the 7th century. One of the British archaeologists Slark Duncan says: & quot; It is absolutely phenomenal discovery. There are some things the likes of which we have never ever met. Size, number and variety of the materials used are dazzling. This completely changes our understanding of the Anglo-Saxon Britain & quot ;.
