For the first time in one hundred years, the mysterious secrets of this 17th century treasure are revealed.

Workmen excavating a cellar near Cheapside in 1912 stumbled upon this now infamous hoard of Elizabethan and Jacobean jewellery, which includes bejewelled rings, brooches, fan holders and scent bottles.

This exhibition, which displays the treasure in its entirety for the first time in more than a century, utilises new research to shed light on who might have owned the hoard, why it was hidden and why it has never been reclaimed.
