Event description
The story of the Hallaton Treasure. Digital talk by Vicki Score

About this Event

20 years ago, an amateur archaeologist and metal detectorist found a handful of Iron Age coins in an otherwise unremarkable field in Leicestershire. This led to community excavations headed by University of Leicestershire Archaeological Services (ULAS) that uncovered one of the most important iron Age ritual sites in the UK that has challenged many of our preconceptions of Britain at the time of the Roman Conquest.

Join Vicki Score, director of ULAS, for the story of the excavations and the amazing buried finds, among them several thousand gold and silver coins buried in the entrance to the shrine and a fantastic Roman helmet and guarded by ritually buried dogs as well as the evidence for large scale community feasting.

The talk will be delivered via Zoom. The talk is FREE but booking is essential. A link will be sent to attendees on the day of the talk.
