TV historian Dan Snow travels across the old Kingdom of Mercia unravelling the secrets of one of Britain's most significant discoveries - the Staffordshire Hoard.

The hoard offers 1,500 new clues into the Dark Ages and the lives of the people living in those long-forgotten kingdoms.

The programme also poses new questions about why the hoard was found where it was.
