The Times 20 August 1981

Posted by Picasa
My thanks to Kate Dumycz for this abstract from 'The Times' of 20 August 1981:

A bronze brooch believed to be the oldest found in Britain has been discovered at Crickley Hill near Gloucester.

Dr Philip Dixon, who is leading the thirteenth annual dig at the site, believes the brooch, which is in several pieces, dates from about 600BC. About the size of a large safety pin, it has been sent to the British Museum to be reassembled.

More than 3,500 relics of the Stone and Iron Ages have been found at this year's dig, which was carried out by a record number of 300 volunteers, including many from abroad."
