Metal detector expert's treasure goes on display
A massive haul of treasure discovered by a metal detector expert in England has gone on show. Bronze Age and Roman "treasures" found by archaeologist James Balme will be on display at Warrington Museum (Bold Street, Warrington, WA1 1JG England; Tel. No. 01925 442392; Fax 01925 442399) throughout April.
James discovered the ancient settlement of Warburton near Lymm after six years of investigations and many of the artefacts were recovered thanks to his metal detecting skills at the site. James, who turned his hobby into a business by launching Historic Media Productions, is holding The Ancient Warburton Exhibition so that visitors can see the finds he has made, including an Early Bronze Age axe in pristine condition, dated by the British Museum to about 1900 BCE.
