This book tells the fascinating stories of some of the most spectacular finds made in the British Isle in a way to give you clues to finding a hoard of your own. The number of hoards discovered in Britain has increased every year since 1972 and the fact that much of Britain's land surface has yet to be searched is held up as evidence by the author that there is much still waiting to be discovered.
The chapters move through history: Coin Hoards from the Bronze Age, Celtic Buried Treasures, The Riches of Roman Britain, Where are those Saxon Treasures, Medieval Treasure Troves, Unearthing the secrets of the Civil War and Hoards in Modern Times.
