Treasures Of The Anglo-Saxons

Treasures Of The Anglo-Saxons

There was a very interesting TV show on last night called ‘Treasures Of The Anglo-Saxons’. At last digital TV has a show that is actually worth repeating 50 million times. If you missed it don’t worry, it will probably be on at least a dozen more times this week.

A goth historian visits the greatest Anglo-Saxon treasures including the Staffordshire Hoard and the Sutton Hoo treasure and talks to various experts on the art and craftsmanship of the Anglo-Saxons. Some incredible Anglo-Saxon belt buckles, brooches and strap ends are shown in glorious detail.

So keep an eye on BBC4 for the repeats!
