Exciting Staffordshire Hoard Gallery
Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery
Visit the fascinating Staffordshire Hoard gallery at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery with Andy Horn, the Exhibition Manager and Pieta Greaves, the Hoard’s Conservation Manager.
The Hoard is the largest amount of Anglo Saxon gold and silver ever found in Britain and this permanent exhibition tells the story of the finding and conserving of more than 4000 objects.
Here the treasures are on display and their full beauty can be explored using the latest touch-table technology.
Visitors of all ages learn of the mysterious craftsmen who produced such fine jewellery using precious stones from the further reaches of the known-world to make adornments for the arms and amour of warriors who step out from the pages of “Beowulf”.
The stories of these men and women come to life in the “Mead Hall” within the exhibit where children can dress-up as Anglo Saxons.
