Burton Constable 2

Fiona Bruce and the Antiques Roadshow team head to Burton Constable Hall near Hull, a property filled with family legends and treasures, including a remarkable cabinet of curiosities. Objects brought in by visitors are just as diverse, including a ship's anchor found in a garden pond and a medal given for heroism to a local sailor who helped break Captain Scott's ship out of Antarctic ice in 1901. There is also a rare example of early flat-pack furniture dating back to the 17th century. And for anyone interested in the wisdom of investing in antiques and collectibles, there is a revelation about how a decision to purchase a flimsy booklet proved a much better investment 30 years ago than buying a second-hand car.
