The 2021 Netflix movie “The Dig” is based on the real life events surrounding one of the greatest archaeological finds in the world, and one of the most notable pre-Viking Saxon era from the 6th to 7th centuries.

Treasures include armor, chain mail, helmets, gold, silver, garnet inlay, and much more. Many of these artifacts can be see in the British Museum in London, England.
The fantastic tale of this discovery can be seen on the new Netflix film staring Carey Mulligan, Raplh Fiennes, Lily James, and Archie Barnes.
