Four schoolboys from Alston, Cumbria, have found an ancient gold hair tress.
The discovery was made when the youngsters, all from Alston Primary School, had taken part in a community dig at Randalholme Farm in Northumberland. They had been inspired by an archaeology project at school.
The 4,300-year old hair tress is the partner gold ornament to a one found during a previous dig at the site in 1935 led by Herbert Maryon which was found by one of the four boys - Luca's - great-grandfather.
Alston and Penrith cemeteries have been named some of the very best in the UK.
The cemeteries are among 1,476 parks and green spaces that have received a prestigious Green Flag Award.
The awards, handed out by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, recognises and rewards the best parks and green spaces across the country.
A Green Flag flying overhead is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible standards and is beautifully maintained.
Alston and Penrith cemeteries are maintained by Eden District Council and their contractor Amey.
Local residents are also actively involved in how the Council maintains these facilities through Friends Groups.
“We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award again from the Keep Britain Tidy. This Award recognises and highlights that people in Alston Moor are benefitting from a green space of the very highest quality.
– Councillor Pat Godwin, Alston Cemetery Friends Group
