Interpreting the Ryedale Hoard - Lucy Creighton
In May 2020, two metal detectorists discovered four spectacular yet diverse objects buried in a field near Ampleforth, North Yorkshire. The Ryedale Hoard contains some of the most significant artefacts from our region and offers fresh perspectiveson Roman Yorkshire. Lucy Creighton will share the story of this find, looking at the objects in detail, drawing on comparative examples and the Yorkshire Museum’s Roman collections. She will explore their use in the 2nd century and the mystery of their burial. She will also outline the Yorkshire Museum’s subsequent acquisition, display and research plans.
Lucy Creighton is Curator of Archaeology at the Yorkshire Museum where she is lucky enough to care for and share one of the largest and most important archaeological collections in the county. Before moving to York she managed archaeological collections in London and Sheffield.
