The items are the latest discovery in the county and were unearthed following the discovery of the famous Staffordshire Hoard in 2009. They have now been sent off to be valued.

The gold item, called a Cloisonne Panel, is from the Anglo-Saxon period and has been described as similar to items found in the famous Staffordshire Hoard, which was unearthed in Hammerwich in July 2009.” – Taken from Article
