ITV Secret Treasures"In this brand new series, ITV1 will reveal the extraordinary treasures and historical artefacts discovered by ordinary people that have changed our understanding of British history.

"Presented by award-winning journalist Michael Buerk and historian and author Bettany Hughes, the series will map out the 50 key discoveries recorded by the British Museum's Portable Antiquities Scheme since it was set up fifteen years ago, with the order of the list being determined by Bettany and a panel of experts from the British Museum and The Council for British Archaeology. They'll trawl through the almost one million finds of the last fifteen years whittling them down to the top fifty.

"Each one will be judged on its national importance, beauty, cultural and historic significance. You can take part yourself by sending in photographs of new objects you may have found. These will be assessed by the British Museum and the best new find will be revealed at the end of the final episode of the series."
