UK's largest Anglo-Saxon find is exhibited in the US
A museum in the United States has begun exhibiting the UK's largest find of Anglo-Saxon treasure.
The exhibition is at the National Geographic Museum in Washington DC.
The hoard of more than 3,500 gold and silver artefacts was found by a metal detector enthusiast in a farmer's field in Staffordshire in July 2009 and is judged to be worth more than £3m.
The Staffordshire Hoard is now jointly owned by the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and the Potteries Museum.
