Unearthing the Staffordshire Hoard
In 2009, a cache of precious Anglo-Saxon objects was exposed in a field close to the A5 near Hammerwich, Staffordshire.

Unlike the Sutton Hoo treasures, which are housed in the British Museum, the Staffordshire Hoard will be kept and displayed in the West Midlands.
