Embossed gold sheet fragments

This object will be on display alongside the Mold Cape at Wrexham Museum from August 8th - September 14th 2013.

Though small and seemingly insignificant, the other objects (amber bead, bronze support strips, and the fragments of embossed gold sheet) found in the grave can provide valuable contextual information on the cape.

Did you know?
The Mold Cape will be appearing in ‘Capes, Beads and Burials: The Mold Cape – A New Perspective, a special exhibition produced in collaboration with Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales and the British Museum.

Keep logging into Wrexham Past and OOKL as all these entries will be updated for the exhibition opening.

These fragments come from a second gold object found in the grave alongside the Mold Cape. You will be able to learn the latest theories about the origin of these fragments and what they might reveal about the Alyn Valley in the Bronze Age in the exhibition.
