The Staffordshire Hoard is the largest and most valuable Anglo-Saxon treasure ever found. Now an exciting new exhibition at The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery will set it in its historical context and reveal the story of its discovery and conservation. More than a hundred specially chosen pieces will be displayed in all their dazzling glory. On show together for the first time in Britain, these breathtakingly beautiful examples of delicate Saxon metalwork have intrigued archaeologists and forced historians to question what they thought they knew about England in the seventh century.
The exhibition will be in the Stoke Museum until September 2013.
The machine here is from Westair Productions, it's designs are identical to those at the Birmingham Art Gallery and Museum, they show various artifacts from the recently discovered Staffordshire Hoard.
