The Jewel which is lavishly made of gold, enamel and rock crystal, will go on display in Taunton having been returned by Oxford University.

It also bears a famous inscription which translates as 'Alfred ordered me to be made'.

Historians have assumed that King Alfred the Great commissioned the Jewel, and that it may have been his gift to the abbey at Athelney which he founded in thanksgiving for his defeat of the Vikings in 878.

The jewel will go on display from Saturday 31st January.

The Alfred Jewel is a unique and compelling object which goes to the heart of West Country history. It left Somerset in 1718 and has never returned, so this is a very special occasion.
