A three-year touring Staffordshire Hoard exhibition has been launched
The hoard comprises more than 1,500 Anglo-Saxon items found with a metal detector by Terry Herbert buried on a farm in Staffordshire in July 2009.
The collection was subsequently valued at £3.3m and is now owned by Birmingham City Council and Stoke-on-Trent City Council.
The three-year touring exhibition has been paid for by £47,000 of Heritage Lottery Funding.
The exhibition will tour various community venues across theWest Midlands for three years and “tell the story” of the discovery of the hoard using replica items and video footage.
