It would have been easy to contact experts known to those involved: John Hunter, Professor of Archaeology at Birmingham University, where Birmingham Archaeology is based, is a specialist in early medieval archaeology and forensic archaeology, with long experience of working with the police--which might have been doubly appropriate; staff of the conservation department of the British Museum, where the Portable Antiquities Scheme is based, have had years of experience of excavating fragile and valuable artefacts; the editor of this journal, Martin Carver, is the founder of BUFAU, predecessor of Birmingham Archaeology, and excavated at Sutton Hoo, the site which has produced finds most comparable to those of the hoard.
