Irish Bronze Age artefact on display
Ballymoney (Northern Ireland) fans of the historic are being given a unique opportunity to view an extraordinary artefact on its return to the province. A bronze-age chieftain's instrument of authority - the Dunaverney Fleshhook - will be at the Ulster Museum for six months, making its first reappearance since being discovered in the early 1830s. A beautiful artefact from the later Irish bronze-age, it has been on permanent display in the British Museum.
The Causeway Museum Service, in association with Ballymoney Borough Council and the Ulster Museum, will be providing a day excursion to see the Fleshhook in Belfast.
