Anglo Saxon jewelry a "real find"

Archaeologists are delighted with the discovery of "the only known Anglo-Saxon royal burial site in the North of England" near Loftus on Teesside, where they found some incredible jewelry dating to the mid 7th century.

Among the 109 graves was the "bed burial" of a royal woman among furs and jewels. Artifacts unearthed included "gold pendants, gold discs with filigree working, Iron Age coins re-used as jewelry, silver brooches, a sword, glass beads, pottery, iron knives and belt buckles." (photo)
