English: Staffordshire Strikes Gold With Iron Age Find - FEB 28 2017

An archaeological find on Staffordshire farmland is believed to include the earliest examples of Iron Age gold ever discovered in Britain.

The collection, which has been named the Leekfrith Iron Age Torcs, was discovered by two Staffordshire metal detectorists just before Christmas 2016.

Unveiling the torcs today (on February 28 2017), experts said the unique find could date back as far as 400BC and was of huge international importance.
