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? This fascinating 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.
The display features a raised wooden-floored mead hall, with columns and banners adorned with Anglo-Saxon artwork– representing ancient designs on the Hoard artefacts – along with a replica fire pit and king’s chair.
Thought-provoking artworks inspired by the mystery of the Hoard are also on display, including a specially-commissioned animated film ‘The Last Dragon-Hunter’.
