Buried treasure!

"Archaeologists yesterday unveiled the largest and most valuable hoard of Saxon gold in history."

The discovery took place on July 5. I haven't heard about it till now, but I'll link it anyway. Why is this back in the news? Some artifacts will be going on exhibit at the Birmingham Museum, starting tomorrow.

A couple of links that have pictures:

Damn who knew that John Saxon had all that gold. I am going to link to you post if that's allright?

Hey I think the evil blogger lady stole your post without giving you a link.

At least that's what it looks like.

Hope it was ok to link to your post.

1) John Saxon! I never would have thought of him.
2) I don't think she reads me.
3) Her post has a different focus.
4) Linking is what the Web is all about.
