Saxon Hoard: A Golden Discovery

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

Dan will be on BBC Two at 8pm tonight. No word on whether this is the same as the programme that was broadcast in the West Midlands last near.

From here:

TV historian Dan Snow travels across the old Kingdom of Mercia unravelling the secrets of one of Britian’s most significant discoveries – the Staffordshire Hoard. The Hoard offers 1500 new clues into the Dark Ages and Dan pieces together the lives of the people living in these long-forgotten kingdoms.
