Out of the Dark Ages – Stafford’s Anglo Saxon Origins
In support of the launch of Professor Martin Carver’s book ‘Birth of a Borough’, this exciting exhibition will explore the stories behind the emergence of the kingdom of Mercia, and the origins and development of Saxon Stafford. The exhibition will link in with the exciting visit of the Staffordshire Hoard to the Shire Hall Gallery on 2 July – 24 July. Fun drop-in children’s arts and crafts workshops will take place every Saturday in July – £2.
The exhibition is supported by The British Museum, Professor Martin Carver, The Potteries Museum, Staffordshire County Council, Staffordshire Heritage and Arts Service and local collections.
