The Staffordshire Moorlands Patera

SAHS is not a genealogical society and is not able to help with family history research. For Staffordshire family history enquiries (and the central Midlands generally ) a good start can be made at

Birmingham and Midland Society for Geneaology and Heraldry


The astonishing Staffordshire patera is one of three objects known - the other two being the Rudge cup and the Amiens patera - which commemorate the building of Hadrian’s Wall more or less as if they were souvenirs made to commemorate its construction. Found recently.
