Call That A Horse..?

Dave and Sarah examine the staters.

Keeper of Archaeology Dave Allen and Volunteer Sarah Gould are checking a small group of Iron Age gold staters from the Andover region against the museum gallery catalogue, as they are soon to be returning to display. Sarah is intrigued by the ‘scissor-nose’ description given to the horse motif on some of the staters, but close inspection shows that this is a pretty good description!
