The east Leeds field of gold

More than a thousand years ago a Saxon thief, desperate to hide his plunder, stashed a hoard of stolen gold in what is today a nondescript east Leeds field.

There it remained until a treasure hunter, out with his trusty metal detector last year, experienced the moment he will never forget when he unearthed the amazing find on the farmland.

. . .  found the broken ingot using his metal detector.

He returned home, but went back to the same field the next day where he found the three rings and section of brooch.

Sue-
Its nice to hear about the mixed treasure-archeological finds, I've heard of several; such a one was some silver torx, supposedly buried as an offering to what ever diety they were appealing.

However, THESE finders are never keepers.
Brian AKA goldigger (I'd keep mine)
