This is way cool!

I saw this article on Yahoo news about the newly discovered Staffordshire Hoard.  A recent discovery of an incredible Anglo-Saxon treasure which archaeologists are saying is more significant than the Sutton Hoo find!  My archaeologist's soul does a snoopy dance.   What I find so amazing about this is the idea that still in this day and age when one would think everything that could be found has been . . . and then we discover there is still more to discover.  Fabulous.
Here's a website with shiny pics.
