Hoarders or Collectors? The British Museum and the Pitt Rivers Museum.
Visiting the British Museum, I was surprised to see these gold and silver hoards. It made me think about the strong Saxon root of hoard. Then the famous Pitt Rivers Museum: it really pushes the boundary between hoard and collection. I love the collections of paddles and keys. It's most famous exhibit is the "Treatment of Dead Enemies" and its collection of shrunken heads.
