One more for the pot - Buckinghamshire A/S Hoard

Well the Weekend Wanderers Detecting Club came up with something valuable before Xmas an Anglo-Saxon hoard of over 5000 coins in immaculate order ranged neatly on a strip of lead, (folded neatly like a pasty)  the coins are thought to have been buried before the Battle of Hastings and the Norman invasion.  Two coins were identified as the heads of Aethelfrud (the unready) and Cnut.
