Time Team Special: The Mystery Of The Roman Treasure

10:00pm Wednesday, April 13 on

The Sevso treasure comprises 14 fabulous Roman silver vessels, considered to be one of the most important and beautiful collections of ancient silver ever discovered. Tony Robinson untangles the complex tale of how the treasure came to be languishing out of public view in the basement of a London auction-house instead of being the star attraction at a major museum. He hears tales of looting, alleged murder and high-level corruption as he gets a glimpse of the scale of the billion-pound worldwide trade in artefacts.
