The stunning mid-Seventh Century jewellery was discovered on a coastal clifftop site at Loftus in Redcar and Cleveland.

The unexpected presence of a royal group near the Tees has opened up a new window on North East Anglo-Saxon history, raising questions of the previous view that Bamburgh and Ad Gefrin near Wooler in Northumberland were the only royal power centres in the Kingdom of Northumbria.

In a dig led by North East archaeologist Steve Sherlock, gold brooches were found in five high-status female graves and a sword in a male burial.

But an even bigger surprise came from the grave of a woman believed to be an Anglo-Saxon princess. Among the jewellery found with her were three gold brooches and a pendant unique in the North East.

I have now read multiple stories in the print news on this and it is interesting. There are many parts of our history that we do not really understand.

I would agree that there are many things we do not understand yet.Just recently gold torcs were found in a field near Blair Drummond near Stirling,worth many millions. Who did they belong too ? why were they buried there? who knows time and hard work will tell.
