Bronze Age relics go on show
8:05am Friday 22nd March 2013 in News
BRONZE Age relics dating back 4,000 years are to be displayed for the first time at the Forestry Commission’s Dalby Forest Visitor Centre.
The remarkable collection, including ceramics, jet, tools and part of a scabbard, were found by local history enthusiasts in the surrounding countryside after the Second World War and kept under wraps for safekeeping.
Two years ago the archive was donated to the Yorkshire Museum by the son of one of these men and much of it will now be displayed in the 3,440 hectare forest, near Pickering, as part of an exciting Museum project to highlight the amazing prehistory of the UK’s biggest county.
Experts say the collection – which will be in place this weekend – is an exceptionally rare insight into life in the North York Moors thousands of years ago.
