Staffordshire Hoard


Members' price *

  • On 5 July 2009 a metal-detector user started to unearth some gold objects in a Staffordshire field. Thus began the discovery of the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold ever found. Consisting of over 1600 items including fittings from the hilts of swords, fragments from helmets, Christian crosses and magnificent pieces of garnet work the Staffordshire Hoard is set to rewrite history. This is just the beginning of the story.

    £1 from the sale of every book will go to the appeal fund.
