National Geographic Museum
The story goes like this: In Dark Age England, an army of Anglo-Saxon warriors marched a field, depositing thousands of artifacts — many made of gold — for reasons still unknown. The artifacts remained undisturbed until 2009, when a treasure hunter discovered them and handed them over to the government. National Geographic brought them to the public with a traveling exhibit. Second Story Interactive Studios designed an iPad installation. META/DMA developed the app. It’s a fitting end to the saga.
The app let visitors zoom in on details of the objects, launch videos, and complete activities to learn more about how these odd artifacts were found and preserved. We are glad that in this world of cordless telephones and microwave ovens, there are still mysteries to be solved.
