Front cover of British Archaeology Issue 131 (July/August)

On the Cover: Researching the Staffordshire Hoard

The discovery of a huge Anglo-Saxon hoard at Hammerwich in 2009 caused a sensation: the gold coursing through the Beowulf poem was seen to be no vain boast. For those conserving and researching the treasure, the sense of wonder and revelation continues. Exclusively for British Archaeology, the archaeologists and conservators working on the hoard describe what has been happening – and what they have found.

  • Unique Early Medieval Helmet

  • The story behind the first Hunter-Gatherer finds from the North Sea

  • Death Pits at Cliffs End

  • Sillbury Hill

  • Conceptual, video and installation artist Jeremy Deller in Venice

  • Alfred the Great

  • Anglo-Saxon earthworks in Cambridge

  • The scheme to redevelop Stonehenge

  • Mick Aston travels to Bodmin Moor
