The prehistoric finds here are some of Britain's finest, and include the Bush Barrow hoard – the country's richest Bronze Age burial, often dubbed the 'crown jewels of the king of Stonehenge'. This treasure trove was discovered just south of the famous stone circle and includes two exquisitely worked gold plaques, ornate belt hooks and a gold-studded dagger.
