Several dozens of bronze objects dated to 10th century BC were found by Policemen near Janowiec Wielkopolski. The officers were on their duty, checking information about men with metal detectors in the fields in the vicinity of the town. As such actions are illegal they were searching the area where such activities were reported. They found a treasure hoard filled with numerous small and large bronze objects.
