Early Bronze Age relics discovered at Dartmoor

Post by annis » Mon November 21st, 2011, 2:03 am

The discovery of Bronze Age relics on Whitehorse Hill in Dartmoor has archaeologists excited as very little is known about early Bronze Age life in the south west of England. Jane Marchand, Senior Archaeologist for Dartmoor National Park Authority and Whitehorse Hill project manager is quoted on the History Today blog as saying that the discovery provided "a most unusual and fascinating glimpse into what an early Bronze Age grave goods assemblage on Dartmoor might have looked like when it was buried, including the personal possessions of people living on the Moor around 4,000 years ago."
