Bronze age pottery find in Jersey

Published by BBC News Jersey, Wednesday 10th October 2012

A rare bronze age pottery vessel, thought to contain tools and weapons, has been found in Jersey.

The vessel, which was found in Trinity, has been wrapped in bandages and tin foil and then sprayed with foam to make it safer and easier to transport.

One of the weapons identified inside is an axe, which experts say could have been used as both a tool and weapon.

The vessel is thought to be about 3,000 years old, but Jersey Heritage is not yet sure of its value.

It was found by metal detector enthusiast Ken Rive, a member of the Jersey metal detecting society, who said it was a once in a lifetime find and the first thing he had found in more than 20 years.
