Golden Days of the Second City

Richard Morrison wrote a celebratory piece about the Staffordshire Hoard yesterday, commenting upon the 10,00-strong horde who queued to get in to Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery over the weekend to view the ‘stash of 1,300 Anglo-Saxon artefacts found in a field outside Walsall’.

Morrison goes on to claim that the exhibition is the most exciting thing to have happened to Brum since Aston Villa won the Inter-Toto Cup. But Morrison hugely underestimates the importance of the Hoard. It’s the most exciting thing to happen in the Second City since Aston Villa won the European Cup in 1982!
