In July 2009, amateur treasure hunters searching with metal detectors on a Staffordshire farm made an amazing discovery: hundreds of precious gold and silver objects from the seventh century. The trove of treasures and battlefield items remains England’s most important Anglo-Saxon archaeological find—a time capsule revealing new stories from when Germanic invaders were laying modern England’s ethnic foundations.
Join us for a screening of the new National Geographic Channel film Secrets of the Lost Gold, followed by a panel discussion including Caroline Alexander, author of the new Nat Geo book and magazine article about the discovery, David Symons from the Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery, and Deb Klemperer from the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery.
Nat Geo Museum and Store will be open until 7:15 for this event (the last tickets will be sold at 6pm with entry allowed until 6:30 pm). Find out more about the Anglo-Saxon Hoard exhibition at the National Geographic Museum, and view a photo gallery of the artifacts.
