Uncover the secrets of the Staffordshire Hoard at The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery in Stoke-on-Trent.
The Staffordshire Hoard is the largest collection of Anglo-Saxon gold and silver metalwork ever found, anywhere in the world.
Discovered in a field near the village of Hammerwich, in Staffordshire, in July 2009, it consists of more than 3,500 items, that are nearly all martial or warlike in character.
The “Staffordshire Hoard: Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Mercia” exhibition at the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery sets pieces from the world-famous Staffordshire Hoard in context among items from the collection of Anglo-Saxon finds, many never displayed before, and offers a glimpse into our ancestors’ lives. Discover what the Staffordshire Hoard can tell us about Anglo-Saxon life and death and what can everyday Anglo-Saxon objects tell us about the Staffordshire Hoard.
The display features a raised wooden-floored mead hall, with columns and banners adorned with Anglo-Saxon artwork– representing ancient designs on the Hoard artefacts – along with a replica fire pit and king’s chair.
