An unemployed man has unearthed the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold ever found with the help of his metal detector.

It says clearly that the man will receive the hoard's worth in payment after its value is cataloged.
Funny how some here take quicker to recommending "theft" of historic finds, then they do to actually reading a full article.
It is a shame that the human race has lost so much of its dignity and self respect, that the majority takes to stealing before it even considers "history in the making".
And for what? Money...
HUGE booming Boo to you (he who offers advice on become a petty thief instead of historic hero).
Star and flag to the OP. Great story to read early in the morning.

The man is unemployed he needs help. A huge reward (how much ever that is) may not be enough to help. They should get full value or be left alone.
