Poster TemplateThe long anticipated Cheshire Hoards will be open from Saturday July 2nd 2016 at Congleton Museum. Delivered in partnership with The Museum of Liverpool.

The Malpas Hoard, found in 2014, is a group of Iron Age and Roman coins buried in the mid-1st century AD, shortly after the Roman conquest of Britain.

The Knutsford Hoard, found in 2012, is a group of Roman coins and jewellery items, including three large and decorative silver gilt brooches. These items were buried in the late 2nd century AD.

This exhibition explores the hoards, and their context in the Romano-British North West.
