Rutland County Museum buckles up for display of rare Saxon gold

An extremely rare Anglo-Saxon gold buckle is to be the centrepiece of a new special display at Rutland County Museum.

The buckle, only the fourth gold buckle to have been found in England, will go on show at the Council-run museum on Wednesday October 23, alongside pieces of a copper alloy Coptic bowl.

Both items were unearthed during a metal detecting rally in Rutland in 2016 and date back to the late-6th to early-7th century AD.
