The best places to see the stars in Britain
1) Mold cape
To look at this extraordinary gold cape - by far the oldest treasure in our list - it's hard to comprehend that it's 3,600-3,900 years old. That is, almost as old as Stonehenge. Beaten from a solid sheet of gold, and embossed with intricate bead-like designs, it is thought to have formed part of a ceremonial outfit.
The cape was unearthed in 1840 by men quarrying for stone in a field known as Fairies Hill, in north Wales. But it took many years for experts to even identify it as a cape, let alone reconstruct it. The cape is now one of the British Museum's star attractions.
