Staffordshire Hoard is coming to America – Medievalists.net.

Wonderful news! Can’t wait to see the exhibition. Given the current collaborators, I’m sure it will be top notch. It has been a long time since I’ve seen a world-class medieval exhibition, the last one being “The Making of England” at the British Museum/Library some twenty years ago.

For more information about the hoard, see the website. In late 2009, the British Museum Press published a small (48pp) volume on the hoard (ISBN: 978-0714123288), with a sampling of photographs.
