Bronze dog statue found in England

A hoard of Roman bronze artifacts, including a statue of a dog, has been found in southwest England.

The 1,700-year-old licking dog is a ’healing statue’ and experts think it may be linked to the Roman temple at Lydney or that there could be a previously undiscovered temple elsewhere in the county.

Pete Cresswell and his brother-in-law Andrew Boughton, who made the find, described it as “a once-in-a-lifetime” discovery.

The artefacts are of such significance that they are being kept in special conditions at a museum in Bristol.
