Context and the Morgantina Hoard

David Gill has an interesting post on his blog "Morgantina Hoard: on display in Rome " about the Morgantina Hoard. There is an interesting point here that knowing precisely where this particular group of objects (or rather two separate groups of objects now muddled up) had come from allowed them to be seen in the context of other items from that same context and its surroundings. In this case there is a very interesting illustration of that capability of that other information to add to our understanding of the objects themselves.
