Metal detector finds 7th century Saxon pendant

Stacey Spiby, a metal detector enthusiast from Shepshed, England, has found a rare 7th century Anglo Saxon oval pendant worth “in the region of a few thousand pounds.”

The 2.5 cm long pendant was much like the jewelry discovered at Sutton Hoo, although on a less grand scale. Experts believe that the pendant may have been part of a necklace with six or seven other pendants.
