Staffordshire Hoard: New display opens in Birmingham

About 300 items from the Staffordshire Hoard - the UK's largest find of Anglo-Saxon objects - have gone on show at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

The museum received £700,000 in lottery funding last year to create the display.

It explains the history behind the items and how they were used before they were buried 1,400 years ago.

The hoard was discovered in a field near Hammerwich in 2009 by Terry Herbert before further items were excavated by archaeologists in 2012.
