....that precious booty, the rounds and the rings they had reft erewhile, hardy heroes, from hoard in cave - trusting the ground with treasure of earls, gold in the earth, where ever it lies: Beowulf extract and translation from final chapter XLIII

The Last Dragon Hunter

A FILM inspired by the Staffordshire Hoard was shown to the public for the first time in October 2013. The Last Dragon Hunter – a 30-minute short film based on the 'Staffordshire Saxon' – will premiere tomorrow at the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery in Hanley. The production combines live action with authentic animation to tell the story of a young boy who runs away following the death of his father. Stoke-on-Trent City Council funded the £10,000 project, a collaboration of BIGred Studio in Burslem and Chris Stone Films, which will be used as part of a public hoard exhibition called The Kingdom of Mercia.
