<DIV>The report linked below includes the significant detail that some of the 
objects are spoil taken in battle from the Mercians' enemies.&nbsp; So some of 
it might be Celtic in origin.&nbsp; But that does not mean that the hoard itself 
is not Anglo Saxon.&nbsp; </DIV>

        <DIV>Jim Rovira asked: "Doesn't a Latin inscription on goldwork sound 
        more Celtic than Anglo-Saxon?"</DIV>

        <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>
        <DIV>Interesting question, Jim. I don't know the answer, but I've put 
        links in my blog entry to a couple more reports that might be of 
        use:</DIV>

        <DIV>Everyone seems to be calling this stuff&nbsp;Anglo-Saxon, and one
