Among the items found were:

• An early Christian cross believed to be from the 9th or 10th Century. It is made of solid silver and is decorated with enamel.

• A large silver Carolingian pot, with its lid still in place - possibly the largest of its kind ever discovered. The pot may have been around 100 years old when buried in the mid 9th or 10th Centuries.

• A large assortment of jewellery, brooches and precious metals.
