Constructions at a community football field in Carnoustie, Scotland, were stopped after the workers discovered a collection of relics while laying foundations. Archaeologists called to the site discovered a trove of artefacts, including a bronze sword, dated to the Bronze Age.
The experts conducting the excavations discovered a sword with a gold hilt dating back to the Bronze Age, roughly around 2000 BC. It has to be specially lifted out in order to conserve it for laboratory analysis. Other items, possibly a spear point or a broken sword were also found.
