Mildenhall Treasure returns to Suffolk

The Mildenhall Great Dish has returned to Suffolk as part of a loan to the Colchester and Ipswich Museum Service. It will be displayed alongside other 'Treasures of Roman Suffolk' including the Cavenham crowns, the Sudbury lantern, the Woodbridge gold coin hoard, the bronze bust of Antinuous from Capel St Mary, and the Holbrook horse harness.

It would be good if these objects found in East Anglia could be joined by the Roman bronzes from Icklingham (not far, incidentally, from Mildenhall). Perhaps Shelby White could demonstrate her commitment to archaeology and offer to return the pieces so that they can be put on display in the Ipswich Museum.
