Archaeology Fabulous Finds

When people think about archaeology they often recall amazing finds of treasure. Gold and jewels like the Staffordshire Hoard spring to mind.

However, any archaeologist will tell you that while gold finds are hugely exciting, their real interest is in what they can tell us about the past. What sort of lives did the people who owned them, or came into contact with them, live? How and when did they end up where they were found?

The archaeology collections at Plymouth contain some truly amazing objects. Some are beautiful gold items of treasure. Others may not look so lovely but the information they reveal is fabulous.
