Treasure! Discovering the Staffordshire Hoard is a family friendly, community exhibition developed by Staffordshire County Council’s as part of the Mercian Trail. It tells the story of the discovery of the Staffordshire Hoard – a process which is still going on. The exhibition has been designed to tour venues which are unable to host original Anglo-Saxon objects from the Hoard. It features high quality replicas and reproductions, video, interactives, costumes and an opportunity for visitors to add their own thoughts and opinions to the Staffordshire Hoard story.
