Valuable artefacts from the Bronze Age have been discovered in Co Donegal.
The National Museum of Ireland have received a report of the discovery which appears to be significant.
Experts from the National Museum have travelled to the site where the artefacts were discovered.
They carried out a thorough investigation of the area for evidence of how and when the important artifacts were deposited.
‘The National Museum of Ireland is delighted by the news of this exciting find” according to Lynn Scarff, Director of the National Museum of Ireland.
‘The Museum would like to recognise the co-operation of the finders and the local community in Donegal.
“We would also like to acknowledge our colleagues at the Donegal County Museum for their collaboration and assistance with this discovery, and look forward to working closely with them in relation to this find over the coming months,” she said.
Following their discovery, the artifacts were immediately removed from the site and transferred to the National Museum of Ireland.
They will be put on display as soon as initial investigations are concluded.Tags:
