Liz Montgomery is Senior Curator at the Grosvenor Museum, the home to many of Cheshire’s finest treasures from ancient Roman and Medieval times, including discoveries which came to our Museum as ‘Treasure Trove’.
The popularity of metal detecting, especially during the recent lockdowns, has greatly increased the quantity of finds and Liz has first sight of precious metal items found in Cheshire which might find a home within our collections.
The Museum has an important collection of antique silver, which has recently been surveyed by an expert from London’s Goldsmith Company and will be researched by The Assay Office, Sheffield.
Liz’s talk will tell us some of the stories behind these precious objects.
