Grave Robbery in England

An Anglo-Saxon horde of gold in Stafforshire, England, has been found by a man with a hand held metal detector.

So the graves of my Viking ancestors are desecrated again.

This poor princeling worked hard his entire life to pillage and burn enough villages and monastaries to gather his treasure for Valhalla, and now this schlub walks around in black socks and sandles and finds it.

All kidding aside, the find is enormous, and will teach us a lot about that period of English history. The Scandinavian settlers/invaders of Britain brought a lot with them, and got back as much as they contributed.

Good on him for finding something this important.
