The History Blog is featuring a very interesting story on the recent
discovery of a treasure hoard from Oxfordshire containing Saxon coins
and Viking silver objects:http://www.thehistoryblog.com/archives/39839 .
The combined hoard is unusual. Even more important are some of the
coins, which point to close cooperation between Alfred the Great of
Wessex and King Ceolwulf II of Mercia.
Enjoy the story and the images.
