The story of the Dawlish Hoard

Join our Assis­tant Cura­tor, Tom Cad­bury for a fas­ci­nat­ing illus­trat­ed talk about one of our lat­est acqui­si­tions – the Dawlish Hoard.

Tom will discuss what is included within this unique hoard of metal, buried during the Bronze Age and discovered in 2017. Why was it buried in the way it was? Why are the pieces broken or bent? Were they simply scrap or buried for a far more important reason? Links will also be made to other interesting Bronze Age hoards and metalwork that have come into RAMM over the past 10 years.
