TALK AT THE BROADWAY MUSEUM & ART GALLERY:
A chance to learn more about the Bredon Hoard - 7pm 18th May 2017

A selection of Roman coins from the Bredon Hoard is being displayed at the Broadway Museum and Art Gallery until the end of May so don’t forget to bring family and friends to see the collection while it is here.

You can learn more about the discovery of the hoard at our talk on 18th May at the museum. This will be given by Deborah Fox, Curator of Archaeology and Natural History at Museums Worcestershire and Angie Bolton, Finds Liaison Officer – Warwickshire and Worcestershire at the Portable Antiquities Scheme.

Two metal detectorists discovered the hoard, the largest ever found in Worcestershire, in June 2011. The hoard dates back to the 3rd Century and features 16 different Roman Emperors. Following the discovery, the county archaeology service took over the excavation and it became evident that not only had a hoard been found but also a settlement site with a long and intriguing history.

The museum will be open from 6.30pm and the talk will begin at 7pm. To attend the talk—costing £10 (including a drink) - email events@broadwaymuseum.org.uk or call 01386 859047. The museum is located at Tudor House, 65 High Street Broadway, WR12 7DP.
