    Focusing on jewellery and personal ornaments worn in life or buried with their owners as marks of wealth and status, the Thaw collection shows how the 'ongoing integration of classical forms and barbarian tastes shaped the preferences of the early medieval period'. The collection includes brooches, pendants, earrings and belt buckles from across Europe and the Middle East, arranged chronologically from around 230 BCE to the end of the Anglo-Saxon period in England and Scandinavia.
