Arrived at the BM to find a small plastic container full of neatly wrapped objects waiting for me: a new hoard from Nottinghamshire.
Like many Bronze Age hoards from Britain it was found by a metal detectorist on private agricultural land.
The hoard consisted of 18 objects, some complete and some fragments, including tools and weapons.
Unfortunately I have no Internet access here at the BM so picturescan be found on my twitter feed @bronzeageman.
First, the sword remains…
