A REMARKABLE discovery of treasure is the subject of a fascinating interactive talk being hosted by Winsford History Society this evening, Monday.

Storyteller Elizabeth Morris will be re-enacting how Edith Pretty, from Winsford, found the Sutton Hoo treasure in Suffolk.

This is the site of two sixth and early seventh century cemeteries.

One cemetery contained an undisturbed ship burial, including a wealth of Anglo Saxon artifacts of outstanding historical and archaeological significance.

David Nellist, from Winsford History Society, said: "It is probably the most magnificent archaeological find made in England for its size, far reaching connections, the quality and beauty of its contents and the profound interest of the burial ritual itself.

"The excavation was privately undertaken by Edith Pretty, formerly Edith Dempster."

On the eve of the Second World War, Edith unearthed this treasure which uncovered amazing facts about Saxon Britain leading the the discovery of riches beyond imagination.

Elizabeth, a trained actor, will act out this fascinating story entitled Cheshire Vale to Saxon Barrow at Hazelmere on Hambleton Way in Winsford at 7.30pm this evening.

All are welcome.

Admission for visitors is £3 and refreshments are provided.
