top stories of the year

An amateur treasure hunter, Terry Herbert, had found two months ago the largest amount of Anglo-Saxon on farmland. Before Terry found the treasure he was walking with his metal detector for 18 years. Terry found the treasure on the farm so, the farmer who owned the farm got half of the treasure. Most of the treasure was war loot, like seventh century crosses and sword decorations. Expert archaeologists were shocked when they heard the news.

They were shocked because that wasn't the largest hoard but the only hoard. "It was an amazing discovery", say expert archaeologists. It contained around 1300 treasure half of it was gold and another half silver.The treasures are gonna be transferred to the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. There was a conference to plan were the treasure would go.

But Whitman also pulled some guiding principles for the team fromThe Elements of Style. You can hear more about the book and the team at NPR.

Strunk and White wrote a book on the rules of grammar. This book is usually given to High School and College students for their classes. It was was originally published in 1918 and called The Elements of Style. It has a list of misused words to help people write better.
