Bristol Museum & Art Gallery - Warrior Treasures: Saxon Gold from the Staffordshire Hoard

Bristol Museum & Art Gallery - Warrior Treasures: Saxon Gold from the Staffordshire Hoard

Exhibition Dates: 22 October 2016 - 23 April 2017

Set within a mysterious forest enter Warrior Treasures to be captivated by a dazzling collection of gold, silver and semi-precious gems from Anglo-Saxon weaponry.

Damaged and fragmentary, these superbly crafted fittings were discarded, but who buried them? And did they intend to come back for them?

The collection is part of the Staffordshire Hoard, considered one of the most significant Anglo-Saxon finds. It almost certainly represents the spoils of war, fought in an ancient kingdom during the 7th century AD.

Don’t miss the opportunity to come up close to these magnificent treasures and discover how a sword was more than a weapon – it signified a warrior’s status, wealth, family and even religious beliefs.
