A student found buried treasure worth £145,000 in an Anglo Saxon grave.

Thomas Lucking, 23, discovered a gold necklace and pendants using a metal detector in Winfarthing, Norfolk, in 2015.

Many will ask why the former history student wasn’t studying but he doesn’t care because he’s rich now.

‘We could hear this large signal,’ Lucking, who is now an archaeologist, said.

‘We knew there was something large but couldn’t predict it would be like that.

‘When it came out the atmosphere changed.’
