Bronze Age hoard found in Essex field

A hoard of axe heads, spear tips and other objects which date back to the Bronze Age have been found in a field in Essex.

The items include an intact pottery container with heavy contents which has been removed undisturbed.

The materials are now at a local museum where archaeologists hope to uncover new insights into Bronze Age Britain.

“This is a really exciting find,” said local archaeologist Laura McLean.

“To find a hoard still located in its Bronze Age context, below the level of ploughed soil, is very rare. The fact that there is pottery involved makes the find even more unusual.”
