3,000-year-old gold jewellery found

3 posts in this topic

A 3,000-year-old piece of gold jewellery found in a bog in County Fermanagh has been declared an item of treasure.

At an unusual hearing before the coroner, the gold torc was described as a rare object of extreme importance.

It was found by Ronnie Johnston using a metal detector in Corrard, near Belle Isle estate in 2009.

It dates from 1300-1100 BC and would probably have been worn around the waist.

It is made of 87% gold and 11% silver and will now go to the Treasure Valuation Committee at the British Museum in London who will determine its value.

Nice find. Big artifacts of that age have a real 'feel' to them, especially when they are made of metal. I've got a beautiful Bronze mace head and a bronze dagger from at least 1000BCE.

Wish I could stumble over a tork! lol, or even a hoarde of them!
