Take a look back at Lost Gold of the Dark Ages, the amazing story of how an amateur metal-detecting enthusiast discovered a gold hoard of more than 1,500 artifacts dating back a millennium, and valued at over $5 million. The importance of the discovery is comparable to finding Tut's treasure. Re-visit the mystery of where the gold came from, to whom it belonged and why it was buried, as historians take us on a journey back into the Dark Ages.
