Over the past 60 years, astounding discoveries of precious metal objects, including torcs, bracelets and finger rings, have been made at Ken Hill, Snettisham, Norfolk. In total, 14 separate groups of objects, or hoards, dating to the second and first centuries BC have been discovered. Jody Joy, who is Senior Curator of Archaeology at the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Cambridge, will discuss some of the findings of a major research project including scientific examination of the objects and a reassessment of the site.
