A new permanent display at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery is due to open in Autumn 2014. It will uncover the secrets of the jewellery-makers who crafted the exquisite pieces of the hoard, with little more than primitive tools.
The exhibition tells the story of the Hoard find and the history of Anglo-Saxon Britain. As well as seeing the Hoard objects you can also use the interactives to take a closer look at some of the star items that are not currently on display.
It will also uncover little-known trading routes between the UK and eastern climes that carried the gold and garnets to our shores.
