We are sad to announce that there has been a very serious break-in and theft from our main archive in Canterbury.
Apart from causing considerable damage and chaos, the thieves got away with over 850 Anglo-Saxon glass beads, large quantities of coins and metal artefacts, and an assortment of bone objects. They also ransacked our educational loans collection, disturbing 90% of the 200 loan boxes, and stealing replica metal axes, pins, coins and other items, including a plaster bust of Queen Victoria.
Please spread the word, and look out for any of these items being offered for sale.
