Leekfrith Torcs Find – Derek Walker’s fascinating interview tonight

TONIGHT (Friday) LASAR Radio`s Derek Walker interviews the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery’s Alison Nicholls to talk about the Historic Torcs find.

Derek was invited down to the museum in Bethesda Sreet, Hanley for a personal private viewing.

Like any good presenter he took his recording machine with him and brought back a lot of information about the find, and how it’s going to be preserved and valued.

The archaeological find on farmland at Rudyard is believed to include the earliest examples of Iron Age gold ever discovered in Britain.

The collection, which has been named the Leekfrith Iron Age Torcs, was discovered by two metal detectorists just before Christmas. Unveiling the torcs at the end of last month, experts said the unique find could date back as far as 400BC and was of huge international importance.

The torcs are on  public display at the museum until Wednesday, March 22. Opening times: Mon – Sat 10am – 5pm, Sunday 11am – 4pm.
