A piece of wood found during a fossil hunt workshop in England is believed to be a Bronze Age paddle.

The artefact, thought to be 3,000 years old, was found during the annual fossil hunt organised by Wildwood wildlife conservation park near Canterbury.

An “eagle-eyed individual” spotted the wood sticking out of mud in the Bronze Age sediment near Swalecliffe.

The Wildwood Trust said the paddle was in a container of water until the county conservator could examine it.
