The Cheapside Hoard: London’s Lost Jewels
Discover the secrets of the Cheapside Hoard in a major new exhibition at the Museum of London. This extraordinary and priceless treasure of 16th and 17th century jewels and gemstones – displayed in its entirety for the first time in over 100 years – was discovered in 1912, buried in a cellar on Cheapside in the City of London. Through new research the exhibition will showcase the wealth of insights the Hoard offers on Elizabethan and Jacobean London – as a centre of craftsmanship and conspicuous consumption, at the crossroads of the Old and New Worlds. It will also explore the mysteries that remain, lost among the cataclysmic events of the mid-17th century: who owned the Hoard, when and why was it hidden, and why was it never reclaimed?
