Staffordshire Hoard: More fragments found in Hammerwich
About 90 more pieces of treasure belonging to the Staffordshire Hoard have been found.
The discovery was made by archaeologists in the same Staffordshire field at Hammerwich where 3,500 pieces were found in 2009.
Some of the new pieces are fragments that fit with parts of the original hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold and silver.
Parts of the original hoard are currently on display in Stoke-on-Trent and Birmingham.
South Staffordshire Coroner Andrew Haigh will rule at an inquest on 4 January if the new metalwork pieces are part of the Staffordshire Hoard and should be declared treasure.
Stoke-on-Trent City Council and Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery jointly own the hoard, which includes gold and silver artefacts.
