The Ryedale Hoard – A Roman Mystery at The Yorkshire Museum
The Ryedale Hoard contains some of Yorkshire’s most significant Roman objects including an 1,800-year-old bust of the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius. See this exciting new discovery and explore the mystery of who buried the Hoard and why for the very first time. The 13cm bust is part of a collection of bronze objects found by metal detectorists in a field near Ampleforth in Ryedale, North Yorkshire, in May 2020.
During term time, the museum will be open Tuesday to Saturday; it will be open seven days a week during the school holidays.
Alongside The Ryedale Hoard: A Roman Mystery exhibition, visitors can also enjoy Yorkshire’s Jurassic World (dinosaurs!), Medieval York: Capital of the North and After the Ice: Yorkshire’s Prehistoric People and the permanent collections. All displays are included in entry to the Yorkshire Museum. Read our review of The Yorkshire Museum here.
