An "incredibly rare" wrought iron anchor thought to be up 2,000 years old is going on display for one day after being found at an offshore windfarm.

The anchor, believed to be Roman or late Iron Age, was found off the Suffolk coast in 2018 during survey work on the East Anglia One windfarm.

It will be on show for the first time at Ipswich Museum on Tuesday, before being moved for further analysis work.

Experts said it was an "incredibly rare, distinctive" anchor.

It was thought to have come from a 500-600 tonne vessel and was believed to be between 2,000 and 1,600 years old.

I assumed anchors that old would have been made of large stones

Roman motto was if you got it flaunt it. Rocks were for barbarians.
