The Staffordshire Hoard: An Anglo-Saxon Treasure
The Staffordshire hoard was discovered by a metal detectorist in 2009 and consisted of over 3500 items, making it the largest collection of Anglo-Saxon gold and silver treasure ever found.
This beautiful new book tells the story of the hoard’s discovery, acquisition and the six-year research project that pieced its fragments back together, identified them and explored their manufacture. Key chapters discuss the decoration and meaning of the hoard’s intricate ornaments, the techniques of the Anglo-Saxon craftsmen, the religious and historical background together with the hoarding practice in Britain and Europe, to place this exceptional hoard in context.
The beautiful photographs and illustrations reconstruct the fragments to show how they would have originally been used.
