20 Years of Treasure

The Oxfordshire Museum

23 September 2017 – 31 March 2018

Celebrate 20 years of treasure hunting in Oxfordshire in this display of objects found by local people and metal detectorists.

Late 16th century gold pendant applique, found by a metal detectorist in 2003

Objects range from clay pipes and pots to gold coin hoards and Elizabethan rings, all contributing to a deeper understanding of the area’s history. Recent acquisitions such as a beautifully decorated pair of Roman callipers are on display for the first time. Many items are now part of the county’s permanent collections, but there is also the opportunity to view discoveries that were recorded and returned to their finders.
