Staffordshire Hoard Conservation Programme Completed – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Aug.25: Thought this would be of interest as l visited the museum sometime ago and saw this amazing hoard and thanks to the original provider https://clioantiquities.wordpress.com

A new post on the Staffordshire Hoard website has announced completion of the cleaning and conservation project.

With many tiny fragments emerging from the soil during this process, the total number of pieces is now about 4,000. Several pieces have been reconstructed from these fragments, with surprising results.

The research phase is continuing and a catalog, research reports and much more will be available online in 2018.

The Hoard website already has an excellent photo gallery of some of the key objects. Read the latest here (opens in a new tab or window). –
