The FishPool Hoard .. Lost treasure from the War of the Roses ??? | All about water, the oceans, environmental issues | Scoop.it

On March 22, 1966, an unusual hoard of treasure was found by construction workers on a building site in the village of Fishpool, near present day Cambourne Gardens, England. The treasure was comprised of 1,237 coins, four rings, four pieces of jewelry, and two lengths of chain. The hoard was unusual because it contained both coins and jewelry made entirely of gold, which made it easier for historians to date.
