Ancient gold in Staffordshire

In 2017 a hoard of gold was found in Staffordshire. The find was made on farmland in the parish of Leekfrith. The hoard contained four torcs – three necklaces and bracelet – which would only be worn by the elite.
The decoration on the bracelet is thought to be some of the earliest Celtic art from Britain.

This discovery was found 45 miles north of the famous Staffordshire Hoard.
