In 2012 two metal detectorists found a massive Celtic coin hoard in a field in Grouville. It had lain buried for 2,000 years.
Since then, Jersey Heritage conservators, archaeologists and volunteers have painstakingly unpicked and studied the hoard, watched every step of the way by the world's media and a fascinated public. Gold torques, silver coins, and gold and silver jewellery excavated from the hoard are now on display at La Hougue Bie Museum.
Jersey Heritage is delighted to announce that, thanks to sponsors Benest and Syvret, a small selection of coins and other finds will be touring the Island parish by parish so that everyone has an opportunity to see a part of this amazing hoard.
The pop-up exhibition will be coming to St Brelade Parish Hall in May 2019 and entry is free.
Come along and find out who might have buried the Hoard and why – and the incredible story of how it was discovered!
The Coin Hoard touring exhibition is kindly supported by Benest and Syvret.
