The curator of the Dumfries Museum, Siobhan Ratchford, has been speaking to ITV Border about the latest exhibition visiting the town:
One of the centre pieces of the exhibition is a Bronze Age sword which was found in a field near Lockerbie many years ago.
It was kept under a bed for 50 years before being handed in.
A selection of archaeological finds from across Dumfries and Galloway are being showcased at Dumfries Museum.
Various artefacts, including pre-historic stone axe heads, a Bronze Age sword, and a Medieval dog leash will be unveiled to the public during the exhibition, which will open on Saturday (9th March).
