The Jersey Hoard

September 2019

For something a little further afield from Malmesbury, here is a photo of a replica of the amazing Le Catillon II Hoard in Jersey!    This is what over 70,000 coins look like – and hidden underneath were gold torcs.   A few volunteers were fortunate enough to visit the La Hougue Bie museum in Jersey while there on holiday and had a chance to see some of this incredible find and hear about the massive effort involved in their ongoing conservation.  An inspirational visit and well worth the trip.
