A collection of Anglo Saxon artefacts from Cambridgeshire will be on show at Chatteris Museum.
The exhibition, which will be on for three years, will replicate the 6th century Anglo-Saxon grave goods from Ferry Hill.
In 1757 workmen repairing the London Road at Ferry Hill, Chatteris, found a high profile Anglo-Saxon tumulus grave, identified by the antiquarian Dr William Stukeley.
The artefacts have been taken on loan from The British Museum, Oxford Archaeology East and Ely, March and Wisbech museums, to be brought together for the exhibition.
A museum spokesperson said: “We hope to stimulate local interest and encourage people to bring in other finds as well as hoping to discover the original tumulus site.”

They add that other local finds and replicas will also illustrate the ‘artistic and technical quality’ of the fascinating goods.
The exhibition will be opened by Dr Susan Oosthuize, reader in Medieval Archaeology at the University of Cambridge, at 12pm on Saturday May 26.
