Staffordshire Hoard Saved

By | Category: Travel news

It has been announced this afternoon that the National Heritage Memorial Fund will give £1.285 million to save the Anglo-Saxon Hoard that was found last year in fields in Staffordshire. (see CD-Traveller 15/1/2010 and 30/9/2009) This, together with the money raised by the councils and the public donations, will enable the hoard to be kept in the area. As such it will form a considerable visitor attraction in the years to come.

It has also been announced that there will be an archaeological dig in the area to see if it is possible to decide why the hoard was left there or whether there are other finds in the area.
