Museum of London: The Cheapside Hoard

Will Gowing If you're like me and you love a mystery, read on! 

In 1912 a hidden hoard of jewels was discovered by workmen in a cellar on Cheapside, a street in the City of London. To this day no one knows where this valuable stash came from OR who left it there. 

The jewellery dates back to the Elizabethan era and is now on display at the Museum of London's 'Cheapside Hoard' exhibition. 

QVC have teamed up with the Museum of London to produce some amazing replicas form this collection, I caught up with the exhibition's curator, Hazel Forsyth, to learn more...
