The archaeologist who helped uncover the original pieces of the Staffordshire Hoard has welcomed a campaign to bring new finds back to the West Midlands.
Staffordshire County Council’s Principal Archaeologist Stephen Dean worked in the field in Hammerwich when the largest collection of Anglo-Saxon treasure ever discovered was found in 2009.
Stephen also supervised the recovery of new artefacts from the same field in November 2012.
These were declared part of the Hoard at an inquest and have now been valued at £57,395.
