National Archaeology Festival 2016

Cuerdale Hoard Find-spot Walk

Dr Fiona Edmonds addressed the 35 adults, children and babies who came on the walk on Sunday July 31st.

The group led by Dr David Hunt, curator of the South Ribble Museum and Exhibition Centre, left St. Leonards church at 2pm and Dr Edmonds spent two hours answering questions during the walk.

Dr Edmunds is a leading authority on the period 800AD -1100AD and was Senior Lecturer in Celtic and Anglo Saxon Studies at Cambridge. She has recently taken up a senior post at Lancaster University. 

The museum is very fortunate to have, on loan from the Harris Museum and on permanent display, a selection of the original coins found at Cuerdale in 1840. The Borough is very proud of its links with the discovery of what at the time was England's greatest treasure.
