The Staffordshire Hoard is the largest hoard of Anglo Saxon objects ever found – over 3,500 gold and silver objects encrusted with precious stones, that provide a wealth of knowledge about the period as well as raising some thorny questions, not least, why was it hidden.  We helped Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery  to develop interpretation for a new gallery to display the hoard by planning and conducting focus groups with Staffordshire residents, planning and facilitating group discussions with families, visiting the current hoard gallery and helping to draw conclusions from this and other research conducted by museum staff.
