Description

Beasts, Birds and Gods by Chris Fern and George Speake

Discover the hidden secrets of 10 key objects in the extraordinary Staffordshire Hoard collection, on display at Birmingham Museums. Beasts, Birds and Gods is an introduction to the animal art of the Hoard. Hear from experts working on the hoard, exploring the creatures and their meaning. Experts put meaning to the extraordinary collection of gold, silver and precious garnets, probably stripped from the weaponry, armour and religious talisman of defeated armies in 7th century England. Items featured in this book represent the symbol of a pagan warrior aristocracy, at a time of great change with the coming of the new religion, Christianity. A must read for any history lover.
