The Staffordshire Hoard, Gold Pommel Caps

The Staffordshire Hoard consists of more than 3,500 pieces dating back to about 650 A.D. This fantastically shiny hoard is valued at close to $5 million and represents the biggest collection of Anglo-Saxon treasure ever discovered. Among the more than 100 items on display at the museum you’ll find mostly military items with a few standouts like gold and garnet sword fittings and a gold strip bearing a Latin inscription from the Bible.
