British Museum Spotlight Loan Exhibition - 'Gathering Light'

Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery 10:00 am - 4:00 pm Exhibition

The sun pendant, also known as a bulla, could be the most significant piece of Bronze Age metalwork ever discovered in Britain.  It was discovered alongside a collection of objects in the Shropshire Marches in May 2018 by an anonymous metal detector user.  An exceptionally beautiful object - it is one of the most significant Bronze Age pieces to be found in the country for over a century.

This rare and spectacular object will go on display for the first time ever at Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery from September until December this year before going on permanent display at the British Museum.
