Horse head from Anglo-Saxon Hoard on display in Stoke





An intricate horse head is the latest item from the Anglo-Saxon Staffordshire Hoard to be put on public display.

The solid gold ornament - about two inches tall - is laced with a filigree gold design and very nearly intact.

It is the latest treasure to emerge from the 1,500-piece Staffordshire Hoard, the largest haul of Anglo-Saxon gold ever found.

It goes on display at the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery in Stoke-on-Trent between 13 February and 7 March.
