Archaeological experts say the find is one of the largest caches of Anglo-Saxon treasure ever discovered.

It contains a collection of gold and silver crosses, sword decorations, and other items.

The exact location of the treasure is being kept secret. One expert says the discovery ranks among Britain's best known historic treasures.

Some of the items will go on display Friday at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery in England.
