English: The Staffordshire Hoard is the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold ever found. The hoard was discovered in a field in Staffordshire, Great Britain, on 5 July 2009. The hoard of about 3,500 pieces, comprising up to 5 kg (11 lb) of gold 1.3 kg (2.9 lb) of silver, eclipses, at least in quantity, the 1.5 kg (3.3 lb) hoard found in the Sutton Hoo ship burial in 1939. The artefacts have tentatively been dated to around 600–800 AD, with some estimating the burial to have taken place as precisely as to within twenty-five years of 700 AD. Whether the hoard was deposited by Anglo-Saxon pagans or Christians is debated, as is the purpose of the deposit.
