Article | Treasure set to move into temporary home

Published by This is Leicestershire, Monday January 14th, 2013

A 2,000-year-old ceremonial cavalry helmet and other treasures are to go on show at their new temporary home in March.

The star exhibits from the Hallaton Treasure will be displayed at Snibston Discovery Museum, in Coalville, while their permanent home in Harborough Museum has a major revamp.

Parts of the hoard of Roman and Iron Age gold and silver will also be the focus of temporary exhibitions at other locations around the county.

The treasure, which includes more than 5,000 coins, was discovered over a decade ago in a farmer’s field near Hallaton.
