HANLEY: The Staffordshire Hoard exhibition at the Potteries Museum was due to shut today – but only for one day.
The closure of the exhibition , which includes 226 artefacts from the seventh century collection, is to allow for some items to be removed from the display so they can be further analysed. Other artefacts will be added.
Councillor Mark Meredith, cabinet member for economic development, said: "One of the fascinating aspects of this treasure is that researchers and conservationists are analysing the artefacts at the same time as items are on public display. They are piecing together the story of the treasure, where the gold and garnets came from, how they were put together in such magnificent detail at a time when technologies were so primitive, and the bigger picture as to why the treasure came to be buried in a Staffordshire field in the first place."
TRENT VALE: Advice on how to boost the chances of finding work will be on offer at a jobs fair. The event also includes information on volunteering, job opportunities, details of work placement openings and careers guidance.
