Staffordshire Hoard to get CSI-style examination
15 March 2011 127 views No Comment
By Luke Powell: The Staffordshire Hoard will undergo a CSI-style forensic event at the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery this weekend.

The Staffordshire hoard.
The event will show how modern forensic science techniques can be used to unlock some of the secrets of the Anglo-Saxon treasure.

Throughout the day there will be a number of science-themed activities including gold panning, and an archaeological ‘mock’ dig, showing the procedures used when excavating the hoard.

An Anglo-Saxon stage drama will also be re-enacted by pupils from Haywood Engineering College in Burslem.

Dr Jamie Pringle, lecturer in Engineering and Environment Geosciences at Keele University, said: “We’ll be bringing things up to date using modern day forensic techniques such as footprint analysis and geophysics.

“As local universities, we have a responsibility to get involved and help people become educated and interested in the Hoard which is of such historical significance to our region and indeed nationally.”

The Hoard, first discovered in 2009 by Terry Herbert, has been recognised as the largest haul of Anglo-Saxon treasure ever found.

Worth an incredible £3.285 million, Terry found the treasure in a Staffordshire field armed with just a metal detector.

“The event will give people an insight into the discovery,” said Chris Stone, Press Officer at Keele University.

“It has been the biggest archaeological find in Staffordshire and is a golden opportunity for people to find out more.”

The event, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, will take place from 10.30am to 4pm on Saturday, March 19.
