To start our understanding of the Anglo - Saxons we invited Dr Denning, who is an expert, to share his knowledge and artefacts. We loved looking at the gold and weapons he showed us and acting out life as an Anglo - Saxon.
We discovered how and who found the Hoard. We were really amazed to find out how close we were to the area in which the Hoard was found.
The treasure was discovered by Terry Herbert on 5 July 2009, when he was searching an area of recently ploughed farmland near Hammerwich, Staffordshire with a metal detector!
