Discover the mysteries of the Staffordshire Hoard

Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire

Discover the story behind the Staffordshire Hoard, the largest and most valuable Anglo-Saxon treasure ever found.


See the fantastic Staffordshire Hoard, the largest collection of Anglo-Saxon gold and silver metalwork ever found, at the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery.

Discovered in July 2009, experts are still trying to unravel the mysteries behind the hoard. The new exhibition Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Mercia, sets the Staffordshire Hoard in the context of everyday Anglo-Saxon life and death. As well as 200 pieces of the Hoard the exhibition includes objects the Anglo-Saxons used in their daily work, and items they buried with their dead to provide for them in the afterlife.

Visitors will be able to experience the atmosphere of a mead-hall and watch a new animated film, The Last Dragonslayer, all watched over by the imposing 9ft sculpture of a Saxon Warrior.
