[FIRST PARAGRAPH] In February 2003 the Kinnettles Heritage Group made a quite unexpected find during field-walking at South Leckaway farm near Forfar, Angus (NGR NO 4379 4810): the most northerly example in Britain — by about 150 miles — of an Anglo- Saxon object decorated in Salin’s Style I. It lay isolated and face down on the surface. A follow-up field-walk at the end of the month confirmed, partly with the aid of a metal detector, that there were no readily apparent additional pieces of metalwork, associated structures or burial evidence. The find was reported under the Scottish Treasure Trove legislation, duly claimed and allocated in June 2003 to the Meffan Institute, Forfar (part of Angus Cultural Services).
