In 2007 rare Saxon jewels, thought to belong to a princess, were found in a grave near Loftus. It is hoped these artifacts will be kept locally and on the 22nd January 2008 this was debated in Westminster Hall by our M.P. Dr. Ashok Kumar; to read his debate click link below. Sadly Dr. Kumar died a few days ago. J.L. http://www.theyworkforyou.com/whall/?id=2008-01-22b.419.0 J.L.
