I am enjoying this documentary about old gold items. I didn't know that the Anglo Saxons used buttons(to hold their swords in the scabbard!)!

A fascinating chronicle of the discovery of over 1500 Roman Britain artifacts (including the largest horde of Anglo Saxon gold) dating back to the later 600's and early 700's A.D. It was found by an amateur metal-detecting enthusiast in a field in southern Staffordshire, England - believed to have been a previous main Roman Britain thoroughfare. Three golden Christian crosses, and other precious ornaments studded with rare red garnet gems and other semi-precious stones are but some of the artifacts found and discussed in this extraordinary National Geographic story.
