Bush Barrow finds lent to German Museum

Summarised from the This Is Devizes site:

The finds from the Bush Barrow will be going to the museum in Halle, Germany, for an exhibition running from October to April.

The exhibition will centre around the recently uncovered Nebra Sky Disk, a Bronze Age disk embossed in gold leaf with the images of the sun, moon and 32 stars, and will bring together for the first time Bronze Age objects found all over Europe.

Dr Paul Robinson, curator at the Wiltshire Heritage Museum, said: "The participation of the Wiltshire Heritage Museum in the exhibition is an acknowledgement of the international importance of the Devizes collection which attracts visitors from all over the world."
