Very exciting day for me today! As part of my work for StaffsLive, I got to go and see The Staffordshire Hoard this morning ahead of it’s public opening tomorrow.
The Hoard was discovered seven months ago and has been touring the country for museum-goers to see. It’s valued at almost 3.3 million pounds. There’s currently plans to raise money to keep the find in Staffordshire.
The selection of the treasure in Stoke will remain there until 7th March.
I went along this morning to find out why the Hoard is so important.
