Over 10,000 people have so far visited the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery during the past three days to see the ‘Staffordshire Hoard’ – a collection of gold and silver treasures dating back to Anglo Saxon times, found by a man with a metal detector in a farmer’s field this summer. The treasures stay at BMAG until 13th October.
