A selection of Staffordshire Hoard artefacts will be on display in Gallery 16 from July 24th. These include 20 artefacts previously unseen.
New items on display include:
Torn gold hilt plate

The Hoard was found in July 2009 by Terry Herbert, a metal detector enthusiast decided to try his luck in farmland close to his home near Lichfield, Staffordshire. The items he discovered - over 1,500 pieces of beautifully crafted gold and silver from the 7th century Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia - amount to the most valuable treasure hoard ever discovered in the UK, worth £3.3 million.
