Staffordshire Hoard

Discover the story of the Staffordshire Hoard, the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold ever found. Visitors can learn more about this incredible treasure, from its Anglo-Saxon warrior history, to the conservation techniques used to unlock its secrets today.

Hundreds of pieces from the Hoard are on show, along with hands-on displays exploring how these intriguing items were used, before they were buried some 1400 years ago. Visitors can find out about the exquisite craftsmanship used to create the items in the hoard, and learn how the designs of the objects can be linked to many regions across Europe.

Younger visitors can get to grips with microscopes and see some of the unusual tools that a conservator uses while working with these precious objects. In addition, visitors can peek into Anglo-Saxon England in the ‘Mead Hall’ showing how a 7th-century Lord and his warriors once lived. Through traditional games, dressing up and storytelling, young visitors will get a true feel of what it was like to live in this war-like time.
