Regionally important Anglo-Saxon silver hooks with entwined beasts are on display at Whitchurch Museum from Thursday 3rd December.
Whitchurch Museum has acquired a pair of silver engraved hooks dating from the late 9th or 10th century AD. This acquisition has been supported by the Art Fund and many local contributors. including Whitchurch Town Council, Prees Parish Council, Shropshire Archaeological Society, Whitchurch Historical and Archaeological Group. The hooks were discovered in the Prees area, North Shropshire, by two individual metal detectorists some two years apart. The two finds were reported to the Coroner as potential treasure under the 1996 Treasure Act.
