Hoards: A Hidden History

Wed 28 Aug 2019

16:00 pm - 18:00 pm

Friends of Brading Roman Villa lecture series.

Every so often a remarkable discovery hits the headlines-an account of treasure hunters striking lucky after years of searching the land, or perhaps a chance find made by a farmer after ploughing. With each new hoard comes a story, or a number of possible stories and unanswered questions. Who did it belong to? Why was it buried or lost and not recovered.

Eleanor Ghey curator of the British Museum and Salisbury Museum partnership exhibition, Hoards a Hidden History of Ancient Britain will be at Brading Roman Villa discussing the practice of hoarding and how and why the British Museum and Salisbury Museum collaborated on the current exhibition. Including details of some of the hoards and how they were discovered.
