    With unparalleled access behind the scenes at the British Museum, Great British History Hunters is a new 4x60 commission for More 4.

    The series follows a characterful cast of passionate metal detectorists and the incredible treasures they’ve unearthed as they make their way through the museum’s fascinating Portable Antiquities Scheme.

    We uncover the secrets of Britain’s rich history, from mud to museum, through heart-warming stories of ordinary people making extraordinary discoveries and the world-leading expertise of the museum’s curators, conservators and archaeologists.

    It’s got history, mystery, romance, a real-life Indiana Jones and bucketloads of buried treasure.
