Learning

We want to encourage both schools and adults with an interest in the Staffordshire Hoard and the Anglo-Saxons to learn more about the treasure, the people and the period.

Learning: In this section

The Hoard is for everyone

The best way to learn more about the Staffordshire Hoard is to see it in person. The exhibitions at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery provide unique access to the Hoard and give insights into the treasure, Anglo-Saxon history and the conservation techniques used to unlock its secrets. Free admission.

There is a range of Anglo-Saxon themed sessions for school children at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery. There are also online resoources that can be used in the classroom and at home.

We also want to encourage adults to find out more about the Staffordshire Hoard and the Anglo-Saxons, whether from an "armchair" interest or from an academic perspective.

We will add to this section as further research becomes available.
