Buried Treasure: The Cheapside Hoard

Museum of London

Sometime in the 1600's someone, probably a goldsmith, hide a stash of jewels in their basement and never returned for them.  What happened to him? Why did he hide the jewels?  Historians are trying to solve this mystery.  While they are sluthing, the treasure will be on display at the Museum of London.

All the the treasure tells a story.  But, I especially love this emerald watch  (above), just amazing.  If anyone is in London and gets to see the exhibit, we would love to hear about it.
