A beautifully illustrated book published to accompany the exhibition running until 27 April at the Museum of London. The hoard of jewellery and other precious items was buried before the Great Fire of London and remained hidden until workmen uncovered it in 1912 when houses built after the fire were being demolished.
A jewelled scent bottle, a watch in an emerald case (a personal favourite), bodkins, fan handles, seal rings and the emerald and diamond salamader brooch used as the emblem of the collection which survived the fire, this hoard is the largest ever discovered.
