Recent analysis of two large pewter platters found at Steane, Northamptonshire, in 2013 revealed traces of food. In this talk, Dr Susan Walker presents the evidence and assesses the implications of this discovery for our understanding of the Mildenhall silver hoard in the British Museum and the Appleford hoard of pewter in the Ashmolean.
