Our ‘Jaw-Dropping’ Bronze Age Discovery Is In The Guardian!

hoard-1200x780

This summer, hundreds of crowdfunders helped us carry out an excavation of a Bronze Age burial site near Morecambe Bay. It was the first major scientific excavation in the region of such a site in over 50 years.

You may remember that at the time, we said we’d made some discoveries that we wouldn’t be able to announce right away… Finally, we can, and you can read all about it in today’s Guardian!
