"The wheels of her war chariot were be-splattered with blood and gore!"
Boudicca. Great Queen of the Iceni in the British Isles at the time of the Romans.
Hidden gold treasure found. Hidden apparently from the Romans. Boudicca a warrior Queen willing to wage war with the Roman occupier. Unsuccessful in that effort, her store of treasure evidently hidden to prevent capture by the Roman.

"Birdwatcher stumbles upon £800,000 hoard of 2,000-year-old Celtic gold coins dating from time Boudicca was at war with the Romans"
"Birdwatcher recovered 1,300 gold coins".
"Experts say each coin is worth up to £650".
"The lucky finder said 'a cascade of coins fell out".
VALUE OF THE GOLD COINS ESTIMATED AT ABOUT $1 MILLION USD. VALUE AS ARTIFACTS CANNOT BE ESTIMATED?

Hidden treasure as reputed to exist often searched for but never found. In this case an accidental discovery hardly less noteworthy.
