apparently, this category is exclusively for hoards discovered in the UK. Hoards in general are categorized under Category:Archaeological treasures. It would make sense to move this to Category:British hoards to go with en:List of British hoards. --Dbachmann (talk) 10:09, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

I've now subclassified into two categories: Category:Hoards by country and Category:Hoards by period. Ideally there should be no files in Category:Hoards. BabelStone (talk) 15:55, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

look, you completely misunderstood. The entire point is that Category:Archaeological treasures duplicates the scope of Category:Hoards. Now if you don't like my suggestion, please deal with it in some other way, but this needs to be fixed. --Dbachmann (talk) 12:03, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Category:Hoards should not be a subcategory of Category:Archaeological treasures or vice versa. Some hoards (such as Mildenhall and Ardagh) comprise items considered to be treasure and so belong under both Category:Hoards and Category:Archaeological treasures, but many hoards comprise base coins or other non-treasure items that cannot be considered treasure (either in general terms or in terms of the now defunct British law of treasure trove). The best solution, in my opinion, is to remove Category:Archaeological treasures from Category:Hoards, and make Category:Archaeology the parent of Category:Hoards.
