Bronze Age treasures for museum
Bronze Age gold exhibits from between 1300 BCE and 1150 BCE are to go on display at Cirencester's Corinium Museum (England). The 59 pieces were found near Fairford, Gloucestershire, and were bought by the museum for £20,000. The collection will be taken away for restoration work in September before being permanently housed in the museum. The museum, in the Cotswolds, re-opened in 2004 after a £5m transformation plan was carried out.
