Britain's rich and varied history is well-reflected in the treasure unearthed from its land. Findings over the last century include items that were once the property of Romans, Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, with a smattering of Iron and Bronze Age riches thrown in.
The east of England has thrown up more treasures than anywhere else in the UK, with the county of Norfolk offering an average of 116 finds per year. This may be down to the rural setting of large parts of the county, compared to cities where much is built upon, leaving the county open to exploration by amateur treasure hunters.
