According to the BBC web site, becuase the hoard has been declared "treasure trove"...
"BBC correspondent Nick Higham said the hoard would be valued by the British Museum and the money passed on to Mr Herbert and the landowner. "
"if so any ideas what & where from?"
Based on the above, you and me, I guess :-)
Still I'd rather cough via my taxes for something like this than fund those money-grubbing wotsits in Westminster. Hopefully, when the experts have finally finished with it, all of it will go on display.I'll certainly be in the queue.
