The Cheapside Hoard

A few years ago Robert had the opportunity to visit the Cheapside Hoard exhibition at the Museum of London.  He will tell us about the Elizabethan era treasure found under some floorboards, forgotten, then re-discovered in the early 1900s. The treasure is composed of a lot of beads plus other materials that help tell the story about world trade and commerce in the 1600s and 1700s.
