A new display about historic artefacts from the town of Stamford Bridge has gone on display at the Treasure House in Beverley.

The objects for the display, which is hosted in the Recent Acquisitions case in the first floor museum, have been provided by the Stamford Bridge Heritage Society. The objects have been discovered by metal detecting and field walking in and around the town and could form the core of a museum that the society hopes to establish in Stamford Bridge in the future.

Said Dr. David Marchant, museums registrar with East Riding of Yorkshire Council: "Alongside displays of items the Museums Service has acquired by donation or purchase, we like to host occasional displays that showcase other collections in our region. This display features a fascinating range of items from Prehistoric flint tools, to Roman brooches, Saxon coins, and some Viking finds. There are some lovely objects, and it shows that there's a lot more to the heritage of the area, besides the famous battle in 1066."

The display will last until the end of February, 2022.
