3,500-year-old weapon found in a Scottish burn

A Bronze Age spearhead which lay submerged in a burn for 3,500 years has been discovered and handed to a museum. The spearhead was found wedged in a rock crevice in a burn at Mennock Water in Dumfriesshire (Scotland). It is now on display in Dumfries Museum. "It is in a remarkable condition having survived in the water for around 3,500 years," said the annual report of the Queen's and Lord Treasurer's Remembrancer.
