ROYAL CORNWALL MUSEUM TO DISPLAY ANCIENT LOCAL TREASURES
1 July 2013
Some of the greatest treasures to ever be found in Cornwall are to go on display at the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro. A number of locally found ancient treasures will be going on display for the first time at the museum, and a talk entitled Recent Archaeological Finds in Cornwall will be accompanying it.
The talk will be held on 18 July from 1-2pm at the Royal Cornwall Museum and will be led by Finds Liaison Officer Anna Tyacke. She has logged 7,443 local finds since 2003 as part of the Portable Antiquities Scheme, and some of her favourite local finds will be going on display. Most of the items date from 4,000BC to 2,100 BC, whilst some of the rarer objects date from the Iron Age and Roman periods, including a gold bracelet uncovered in St Buryan.
Both locals and those enjoying a luxury cottage holiday in the area must book to attend this fascinating free talk, and places can be guaranteed by calling 01872 272205.
