The Staffordshire Hoard

Yorkshire Numismatic Society - March Meeting

http://yorkshirenumismatic.blogspot.com/

The YNS will host Kevin Leahy's talk on the Staffordshire Hoard as part of the Harrogate Coin Fair at 11:30am on Saturday 24th March at the Old Swan Hotel. This amazing Anglo-Saxon hoard, found near Tamworth, is one of the greatest detecting finds in England. Historians are still struggling to understand the circumstances of its deposition and the meaning of the damage inflicted on the jewel-encrusted, richly-engraved gold constituting the hoard. This is an opportunity to hear one of the most entertaining speakers on the numismatic circuit – an archaeologist who has been involved with the find since the discovery. Kevin is the Portable Antiquities Scheme’s National Finds Adviser - Early Medieval metalwork.

The talk is free of charge. Further information about the speaker can be found here.
