Nothing is more evocative of past civilizations than the hoards of treasure that are found by archaeologists. Many come from tombs and burial chambers, but they have been found too in sunken wrecks and underwater cities, in shrines and temples and royal palaces the world over. Paul Bahn and his team tell us of the extraordinary treasures, and of the equally extraordinary men and women who spent their lives on quests for the unknown.
