The material here consists of four main strands.

Catalogue - this is available in two forms. The main one is the database that provides the catalogue entry, the definitive final images as well as additional ones of the individual pieces prior to and after cleaning, X-radiograph images, conservation reports and reports on the scientific analysis of the fragments if undertaken. This also has information about where the fragment was found and what its associations were (if known). The database tables and images can inspected via the interface provided here or downloaded. A briefer catalogue consisting of the description and final image is provided in the form of a series of pdf files together with a gazetteer of images providing an overview.

Staffordshire Hoard Research Reports - these provided the details reports on the scientific analysis that was undertaken, the surveys of the area the hoard was found in including the full report on the archaeological excavations undertaken, and an overview of the project from an organisational perspective.

Project Designs - these describe the motivation for the work, its organisation and its timetable.

Newsletters - these were published during the life of the analysis stage and provide information about its progress.
