‘Exceptional’ hoard of Bronze Age treasure goes on display

Bronze Age treasure discovered near the River Thames is going on display for the first time.

More than 450 bronze objects, including weapons and tools, were unearthed in east London.

The find is one of the largest Bronze Age hoards in the UK.

The treasure was found in Havering by archaeology experts who were asked to look at a site being developed for gravel extraction.

“This exceptional discovery came up,” curator Kate Sumnall said.
