Do you remember this painting?

21st of October, 2012 

The BBC gave this report today.  The 81 new pieces of the Staffordshire Hoard will be valued by the Treasure Valuation Committee at the British Museum in March. Speculation has already begun about how much 81 newly-discovered pieces of the Staffordshire Hoard will be worth.The pieces of Anglo-Saxon gold and silver were declared treasure by coroner Andrew Haigh on Friday and will now be valued by the British Museum. There are two items in the current collection that do not sparkle as much as the others but which could be the most valuable to archaeologists researching the hoard.

"We found decorative copper alloy material about 100m from the place where the hoard was buried, which shows there's potential for other activity at the field," said county archaeologist Stephen Dean.

Good numerics there 81, 8+1 = 9 - Completion and divine love.
