Peterborough Museum - Exhibition
Hoards: A hidden history of ancient Britain
12th October - 15th December 2019 (10am - 4pm daily)
Peterborough Museum, Priestgate, Peterborough, PE1 1LF
People have been placing metalwork and valuable objects in the ground and in water since the Bronze Age (c. 2200–800 BC). The exhibition looks at the varied and changing explanations for the burial and non-recovery of hoards. Whether accidentally lost or stolen, discarded as worthless, saved for recycling, hidden for safekeeping, or offered as gifts for the gods, their stories continue to fascinate. It will showcase recent discoveries of hoards reported through the Portable Antiquities Scheme and Treasure Act and brings together objects from the British Museum and Salisbury Museum, including the spectacular Ipswich Iron Age gold torcs and other Bronze Age finds from places such as Must Farm and Ely.
A British Museum and Salisbury Museum Partnership Exhibition, supported by the Dorset Foundation. Following on from the success of the Hoards display at the British Museum in 2016, this partnership exhibition has visited museums across the UK as part of the British Museum's National Programmes to display and highlight prehistoric, Roman, early medieval and later hoards. Peterborough is the last venue to show this amazing collection of finds, so please take the opportunity to visit whilst they are still available to enjoy!
To coincide with this exhibition, Peterborough Museum are running a series of exciting talks at the Museum. Tickets are £6 per talk and are available to purchase from Peterborough Museum reception by calling 01733 864663 or online:
