Buried Treasures was a 1999 audio anthology in the Bernice Summerfield series. It was a special limited-edition subscriber-exclusive release accompanying the Time Ring Trilogy and featured first original stories about Benny recorded by Big Finish Productions.

Additionally to the two stories, the disc also included Gary Russell's interviews with Paul Cornell[1], the author of one of the stories and the creator of Bernice Summerfield. It also contained a music suite from Walking to Babylon and Just War, a trailer for the rest of the range and the "New Adventures Theme".
