Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Mercia
What can the Staffordshire Hoard tell us about Anglo-Saxon life and death? What can everyday Anglo-Saxon objects tell us about the Staffordshire Hoard? A fascinating new exhibition sets pieces from the world famous Staffordshire Hoard in context among items from our collection of Anglo-Saxon finds, many never displayed before, and offers a glimpse into our ancestors’ lives. Thought-provoking artworks inspired by the mystery of the Hoard are also on display.
