Stories from store: Ancient warriors dug by modern day veterans

This free online talk will reveal how a treasure discovery led to the excavation of a princely burial in the Cotswolds.

Thousands of archaeological objects are discovered every year, often by metal detector users, but also by chance when people are out walking, gardening or at work.

Bristol Museum & Art Gallery works in partnership with the British Museum to enable finders of these objects to report and record them with the Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS).

This talk explains how this particular find led to even more amazing discoveries by a team of Operation Nightingale archaeologists.

Speaker: Kurt Adams, PAS Finds Liaison Officer for Avon and Gloucestershire.
