With exclusive access to one of the most important discoveries of modern times, National Geographic uncovers the secrets of the largest hoard of Saxon Gold ever found.


Lost Gold of the Dark Ages chronicles the story of an amateur metal-detecting enthusiast who discovered a gold hoard dating back a millennium and valued at over $5 million. To understand the origins of the hoard, National Geographic travels back to the Dark Ages when Christian and pagan tribes fought for control of the emerging country of England.


Where did the gold and garnets come from, why were they buried, and when? And, who were the magnificent Gold Saxon Warriors they once belonged to? Secrets of the Lost Gold takes us on a fascinating quest to reveal the hidden secrets of the 3,500 piece treasure hoard. Includes: Lost Gold of the Dark Ages and Secrets of the Lost Gold.

    Comments about Lost Gold of the Dark Ages DVD:

    A well-done DVD giving a nice overall look at both the treasure itself and the people involved with it. It was interesting to meet the man who discovered it and how he did, plus the necessity then to protect the discovery. There were some nice shots of individual pieces and it was interesting to learn how the detailed inlays were made and how far some of the materials travelled to be part of them!

    In July 2009 an amateur metal-detecting enthusiast made an astonishing find: 1,500 pieces of bejeweled gold and silver almost 1,500 years old, buried, lost, then forgotten. The treasure trove promises to shed unprecedented light on the most mysterious period of British history—the so-called "Dark Ages"—when the Saxons, Anglos, Celts, Picts, Jutes, and Vikings battled for control of the British Isles and a "mish mash of peoples evolved into a homogenous nation possessed with a strong cultural identity," according to New York Times bestselling author of the book, Caroline Alexander.

They are a part of us we never knew existed. What did these "people" look like? And how do they fit into what we thought we knew about our biological development as a species?

    During excavation for the deepest submerged tunnel in the world, engineers in Istanbul uncovered a hidden past: a preserved ancient harbor. It is the biggest maritime discovery in history, and to date, more than 30 shipwrecks from the Byzantine era have been recovered. With new findings every day—including stone foundations from a settlement dating back 8,000 years—construction of the tunnel has come to a halt, and the delay is costing the engineers millions. Now, National Geographic goes on site to one of the largest archaeological excavations ever undertaken and grants viewers behind-the-scenes access to this heated battle between modernizers and historians.

    Over the centuries, explorers traded tales of a lost civilization amid the dense Amazonian rainforest. Scientists dismissed the legends as exaggerations, believing that the rainforest could not sustain such a huge population—until now. A new generation of explorers armed with 21st-century technology has uncovered remarkable evidence that could reinvent our understanding of the Amazon and the indigenous peoples who lived there. Using CGI and dramatic re-creations, National Geographic re-imagines the banks of the Amazon 500 years ago, teeming with inhabitants living in the Lost Cities of the Amazon.

    National Geographic Ultimate Explorer host Lisa Ling examines the consequences of China's two-decades-old ''one-child policy,'' designed to curb the country's exploding population. Due to cultural, social, and economic factors, traditional preference leans toward boys, so girls are often hidden, aborted, or abandoned.

    Legends of lost civilizations have captivated people throughout time. During the Age of Discovery, explorers searched the Pacific in vain for a mysterious land they called terra incognita or unknown land. To this day, the elders on Easter Island claim their ancestors came from a continent called Hiva, believed to have sunk after a great disaster. Now, new scientific evidence points to a remote island chain in Polynesia as the center of an ancient, thriving civilization. For over 400 years these islands have been known as the Marquesas Archipelago, but before that the native Polynesians called them simply The Isles of Hiva. Could they be a remnant of the lost continent of Hiva?

    Colombia is in the throws of a gold rush unlike anything it has seen in years. Across dense jungle and the rural countryside, wildcat miners are tearing up huge swaths of land in a frenzied search for the precious metal. Even more worrying for authorities is that this gold may be fueling a new chapter in the civil conflict that has defined Colombia for the last five decades.
