How significant is the latest 'Staffordshire Hoard' find?

Around 90 new pieces of gold and silver, thought to belong to the Staffordshire Hoard have been discovered.

Archeologists made the find in the same field where the 3,500 pieces of the Hoard were unearthed in 2009.

Among the new pieces are what is believed to be parts of a helmet cheek and an eagle shaped object.
