Archaeologists have uncovered an “extraordinary” Anglo-Saxon burial site in Britain that dates back 1,600 years. Its 20 occupants are surrounded by ancient treasures such as amber beads, silver rings, and even a pair of tweezers.
Specialists became aware of the site when a local metal detectorist began finding various metal goodies, from copper-gilded brooches to ancient spearheads. These artifacts were reminiscent of those generally found at Anglo-Saxon burial sites, so archaeologists began digging to uncover any remaining artifacts before the area could be damaged by agriculture.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
