Unemployed man finds £3 mill buried treasure

Unemployed Terry Herbert finds £3.285 Million worth of buried Anglo Saxon treasure buried beneath a farmer’s field in Staffordshire.

It has more than 1,500 items, made of gold and silver, embedded with precious stones and jewels.

The treasure was initially found on a farm by an amateur metal detector, Terry Herbert from Burntwood.

It dates back to around the 7th Century and is valued at £3.285m.

After the Staffordshire Coroner ruled in September 2009 that the find was the ‘property of the Crown’, arrangements were made for the valuation.

The money will be split between Mr Herbert, and Fred Johnson, who owns the farm where it was discovered.
