Lost Gold of the Dark Ages

War, Treasure, and the Mystery of the Saxons

Caroline Alexander, Photo. Robert Clark

The Staffordshire Hoard, made up of 3,500 pieces of gold and silver, was discovered by metal-detector in 2009. As one of the most astonishing finds of treasure in the British Isles, it promises to shed much light on the 'Dark Ages' of British history, when struggles for control between different peoples created the cultural identity of the nation. With spectacular photographs of the treasure and other artefacts, this book demonstrates what we can learn about that age of near-constant warfare.
