Finder disputes PAS committee’s valuation of Anglo-Saxon treasure

The valuation of an Anglo- Saxon jewellery hoard discovered in Yorkshire is being disputed by the finder.

Paul Hardcastle found the high status objects c.600- 700AD while digging a fence post in his York garden.

He disagrees with a £2800 valuation given by the Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS) as he says he has received bids of £48,000 for the collection when it was offered for sale on an antiquities website. He withdrew the items, which were later declared treasure and thus owned by the Crown.
