Treasure Revealing the Secrets of the Hoard

La Hougue Bie

Event Overview

The story is just beginning…During the summer of 2012 two men, using metal detectors, discovered ancient treasure in a field in Jersey. This  treasure of compacted coins and jewellery had lain hidden for 3,000  years.

Conservators have now excavated the hoard and found some truly amazing treasures including gold torques and silver ingots.

Now the real journey of discovery begins as we start to look at why the hoard was buried, by whom and when, following clues revealed by the  contents of the hoard.
