Finding Lost Treasure

longsutton_lidar_labels2It was the year after the Magna Carta was sealed, the country was in revolt and King John was having to quell rebellion uprisings. He had been traveling from the port of King’s Lynn to Lincoln when, according to historical chronicles, the treasure was lost.

Now, clues about the disappearance of King John’s treasure have been unearthed in a “game changing” archaeological survey, according to historian and archaeologist Ben Robinson.

“These lidar-derived images show in remarkable detail the way the landscape has changed radically since King John’s time,” says Mr Robinson, who has been investigating the route for the BBC’s The Journey of the Magna Carta King.
