Renowned treasure items which are on loan from the British Museum are set to be put on display in Norfolk.
Thetford's Ancient House Museum will put on an all-new Thetford Treasure exhibition starting on July 22 and finishing on August 29.
The Thetford Treasure dates back to 390 AD and was found by metal detectorists Arthur and Greta Brooks in 1979 and includes 44 pieces of jewellery and 33 silver spoons.
Eleven key items from the Roman hoard, will be shown including the famous gold belt-buckle, a gold chain necklace, gold bracelets, gold finger rings, a pendant, a silver strainer and inscribed silver spoons.
Margaret Dewsbury, cabinet member for communities and partnerships at Norfolk County Council said, “I am so pleased these internationally renowned Roman objects will be displayed once more at the Ancient House Museum, so close to where they were originally discovered.
