Is buried treasure still out there?

MORE PLEASE: Hidden Hoards and Buried Treasure Troves Are Real and Still Being Discovered (Madeleine Muzdakis, My Modern Met). Okay, strictly speaking, none of the hoards listed involve ancient Judaism. But we can hope, right?

The seventh-century Staffordshire hoard (see here and here) included a gold strip bearing a biblical quotation from the Latin Vulgate.

To be clear, I will happily take a hoard of manuscripts. Precious metals, gems, coins. etc. are welcome, but optional.
