20 Years of the Hallaton Treasure
Updated: Nov 25, 2020
One of the most important Iron Age discoveries in Britain
In November 2020, we celebrated 20 years since the finding of the Hallaton Treasure. On 23rd November, Harborough Museum hosted a special panel event to mark the occasion. With contributions from Ken and Hazel Wallace, Hallaton Field Work Group, Vicki Score, University of Leicester Archaeological Services, Marilyn Hockey, Conservator at the British Museum, and Helen Sharp, Leicestershire Museums.
It was a fascinating event, giving information about the Treasure but it was especially interesting to hear their personal accounts of their involvement. The event was recorded so you can catch up with this special event on the Harborough Museum Website: http://www.harboroughmuseum.org.uk/displays/hallaton-treasure/
Also, on 27th October 2020, as part of a series of digital lectures by the University of Leicester Archaeological Service (ULAS), Vicki Score, their Deputy Director, gave an excellent talk ‘Rituals, Hoards and Helmets - the story of the Hallaton Treasure’
about the finding of the Hallaton Treasure and an up to date account of the artefacts. You can watch the recording, and others in the series, here:
