I’d like to point out to readers and Staffordshire Hoard buffs that the exhibition about the Saxon loot has now opened at the Chasewater Innovation Centre, Pool Road, Brownhills and runs until October 27th. The exhibition is free, and there’s lots to see and do.

Tonight at 7:00pm, Friday 4th October 2013 there will be a talk by Hoard expert Steve Dean on the subject of the remarkable find. The talk is just £2 to attend and promises to be very interesting indeed. You can buy tickets in advance, or pay on the door.

Details have been posted on the Chasewater Country Park Facebook page, and also at the Lichfield Mercury.

Welcome to Anglo Saxon Staffordshire!

Come down and get involved with our interactive exhibition which includes Anglo Saxon costumes to dress up in, Hoard replicas, a short film and lots of information about the Hoard itself and its future. You can even find your own hoard with our mini metal detectors.

Set up yesterday the exhibition will run until 27th October with a talk this Friday (4th October 2013) at 7pm from Steve Dean. Steve played a key part in the clean up of the hoard, offering a deeper, first hand insight into this piece of local history. Tickets are £2.00 and can be brought on the door or at the Innovation Centre.

    Hi Bob
    I found this exhibition very interesting and clearly displayed when I visited it earlier this morning. Easy access and parking, plus the Chasewater Park’s other attractions made this a thoroughly enjoyable time. I understand that the exhibition here is only a temporary feature but I do feel that it would make an excellent permanent additional feature. Perhaps this could be considered by the various funding agencies involved.
    kind regards
