Wrexham hoard to be shown in Cardiff

Update of a previous story, from News Wales (

A Bronze Age hoard of international significance has been declared treasure today by H.M. Coroner for North East Wales. Dating to the Middle Bronze Age, this hoard includes a torc, bracelet, a necklace pendant and a collection of beads and rings, all of gold.

The hoard was discovered by three friends Peter Skelly, William May and Joseph Perry, whilst metal-detecting in the Burton area, near Wrexham, during January this year.

The National Museums & Galleries of Wales will acquire the hoard, following its independent valuation. It is anticipated that the hoard will be displayed for the first time over the summer at the 'Buried Treasure' exhibition at the National Museum & Gallery in Cardiff:
