Save the Hoard

Save the Staffordshire Hoard!

The hoard of Anglo-Saxon artefacts, found in a field near Lichfield late last year, is under threat of being sold off privately unless £3.3million can be raised in 13 weeks. It is a CRITICAL piece of British history, and needs to be preserved complete in the museums at Birmingham and Stoke so that it can be studied properly.

More here at the Art Fund who are coordinating the campaign and taking in the donations.
