I've seen the stunning photos of this hoard in a recent issue of National Geographic Magazine. A lot of the treasure consists of broken and/or twisted pieces of gold jewelry. Was this stolen loot that was hoarded? Were the pieces soon to be melted down? Were did the metals and precious stones originate?
