Why donate?

In 2009 you helped us by raising £900,000 towards the acquisition of the original find of the Staffordshire Hoard.

We were delighted that 81 more pieces of the Staffordshire Hoard were found by archaeologists when working on the site after the field in Hammerwich was ploughed in November 2012.  

Just days after a donation appeal was launched in May 2013 for the new finds, we were thrilled to announce the news that they had been secured for the nation by a single donation from Royal court jewellers, Wartski, who made the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding ring.

We were absolutely delighted by the donation and are looking forward to working on conserving and researching the new finds, along with the other 3,500 pieces and fragments of treasure.

To help us continue this vital work, and to display the treasures for all to see across the region and beyond, your ongoing donations are vital.

Thank you for your support!

Birmingham Museums Trust (on behalf of Birmingham City Council) is the joint acquiring partner of The Staffordhire Hoard with The Potteries Museum, Stoke-on-Trent (part of Stoke-on-Trent City Council). We are working with partners in Staffordshire County Council, Lichfield District Council, Tamworth Borough Council, The British Museum, English Heritage and the Portable Antiquities Scheme.  The Staffordshire Hoard was originally acquired in March 2010 thanks to a public donations campaign led by the Art Fund, the national fundraising charity for art.
