In July 2009, Terry Herbert was enjoying his hobby of metal detecting on Fred Johnson’s field in Staffordshire, England. Based on signals from his metal detector, he discovered a collection of Anglo-Saxon gold and silver numbering more than 3,500 individual pieces.

Learn about archaeology and get your hands dirty with an interactive excavation experience at the National Geographic Museum’s Family Archaeology Workshop. Come experience the joy of discovery!

This workshop is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Anglo-Saxon Hoard: Gold from England’s Dark Ages.

Advance registration is required. Please email NatGeoMuseum[at]ngs.org to register. Registration is now full.
The event will take place in the Museum’s M Street building, located at 1600 M Street NW.
