The Staffordshire Hoard Conservation Programme and the Mercian Trail: reaffirming regional pride in our Anglo-Saxon past

The authors explore the long-term impact of the Staffordshire Hoard on the English Midlands region, and examine how the hoard conservation programme, in collaboration with the Mercian Trail, is using the enthusiasm for the Anglo-Saxon past generated by the hoard to create new opportunities for social and economic development at a regional level. Central to this, the conservation programme has developed new ways to share the conservation process with several groups. The talk provides a glimpse into the way conservation can sit within a project and help to illustrate different aspects of a project other than the objects themselves.
