Iron Age Treasure Hunt

This silver mount with gold decoration would have been attached to another object via the holes around the edges. Some of the holes were added after part of the edge was damaged so that it could still be used. This re-use suggests the mount was somebody's treasured procession.

Try our online Iron Age Treasure Hunt. Download a copy of the quiz and look at the Hallaton Treasure section of the website to find the answers!
