Staffordshire Hoard

On 6th June the museum hosted a talk on the Staffordshire Hoard. Museum volunteer Dorothy Robinson attended the talk, and she has submitted this report. We hope that everyone enjoyed the evening as much as Dorothy!

“The recent talk organised by the museum was so popular that it had to be moved to the Meeting Room of the library. It was to an audience of over 60 people that Mr. Stephen Dean, the Staffordshire County Archaeologist gave a most inspiring and informative talk on the Staffordshire Hoard. He was very enthusiastic and interesting on the significance of this find of medieval artefacts. The slides he showed, together with his descriptions of the objects will have inspired many members of the audience to visit the Stoke-on-Trent Museum to see the articles for themselves.”
