When the secret room was opened in March, 1600 treasures from the 19th century were discovered, including a ladies fob watch, a brooch, mustard pots, cutlery, bottles and china.
Underground Overground Archaeology director Katharine Watson said the find was “amazing and surprising”.
“It was under a multi-storey office building so we didn’t expect to find a thing. You don’t expect much to survive construction of those buildings,” she said.
