Security aim for Bronze Age show

Breaking News

A museum in Wiltshire is aiming to raise £500,000 to pay for a high security gallery to exhibit rare Bronze Age artefacts discovered 200 years ago.

The Bush Barrow tomb, near Stonehenge, was excavated in 1808, and is considered to be one of Britain's most important Bronze Age burials.

The skeleton of a man was uncovered along with several items including a large "lozenge-shaped" piece of gold.

The items are locked in a bank vault - unseen by the public for 30 years.
