Bush Barrow

Round Barrow(s)


BBC Wales

Some tiny pins (less than half a millimetre wide) have been found in a desk at Cardiff University.. they'd been there since the 1960s, but were originally unearthed at the Bush Barrow 200 years ago (I suppose at least they were safe and can now be examined with Modern Technology). It's thought there were originally a staggering 150,000 of these pins on the handle of a Bronze Age dagger. They're to go on display at the museum in Devizes.
