العثور على كنز أثري في بريطانيا

Hello and welcome to BBC Xtra English!

A man in Britain called Terry Herbert has just discovered the largest Anglo-Saxon treasure to be found in the UK until now.

He found the treasure on a farm using a simple metal detector.

The treasure includes 5 kilograms of gold and about 2.5 kilograms of silver.

It is made up of over 1300 pieces of jewellery and other items with precious stones and beautiful decorations.

The other items includes swords, knives and metal caps used to protect peoples heads during times of war.

The treasure is now being kept in secure storage at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Robert Broomby, the BBC's British affairs correspondent, told the BBC that this is a very significant find, particularly as the quality of the craftsmanship is supreme.

But experts are still unsure of who exactly made the treasure and who it belonged to so many years ago.
