2500 years ago, a remarkable collection of Bronze Age objects was hidden in a Shropshire wetland. We hope to purchase them to find out why.

I am very disappointed that such a beautiful piece should have to leave the county where it was found. Surely it is ours, they could put a copy in the British Museum!!!!

This is such an important issue! Local areas should keep the rare gems of their history - whether that's the Greek Marbles, Tribal Masks, or the North Shropshire Hoard. People should have access to learn about their local culture and to be inspired by it!

We must keep this wonderful hoard in Shropshire. It opens a window on an ancient and mysterious time in our county.

These are such important finds, they belong to the people of Staffordshire and Britain, and should be in the public eye. What a shame to have to do this to protect one's own heritage. Good luck from Ireland
