Bronze Age burial site uncovered in Lancashire field

From the BBC...

"A Bronze Age burial site uncovered after two metal detector enthusiasts found artefacts is set to be excavated.

Matthew Hepworth and David Kierzek discovered a chisel and a dagger in a Lancashire field, 20 years after one of them first explored the site.

This led to the uncovering of an ancient barrow at the site, which lay untouched for thousands of years.

The men will take part in a dig in July, which is being financed with a £49,500 Heritage Lottery Fund grant."
