You are warmly invited to attend our second paper of this academic year. The Cheapside Hoard is the greatest hoard of Elizabethan and Jacobean jewellery ever found. Now displayed in the Museum of London, it was uncovered in the cellar of a building demolished in 1912. The hoard includes a wide range of high quality necklaces, rings, pendants and brooches, many of them incorporating precious and semi-precious stones from all over the world.
Hazel Forsyth is Senior Curator of the Post-Medieval Collections at the Museum of London, and her talk will be illustrated with power point slides of the beautiful jewellery.
The talk will be on 11 November at 6:30 in the Clore Building, Room 01.
Free to Members; £3 non-members; Membership £5.
