The Hoard is made up of over 1,500 pieces of beautifully crafted gold and silver from the 7th century Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia. It was discovered in July 2009 by Terry Herbert, a metal detector enthusiast, in farmland close to his home in Hammerwich parish, near Lichfield in Staffordshire.
The exhibition tells the story of the Hoard find and the history of Anglo-Saxon Britain. As well as seeing the Hoard objects you can also use the interactives to take a closer look at some of the star items that are not currently on display.
