Two hoards of axe and spear heads were found 135 metres apart in a field in Llantilio Croessenny, by a group using metal detectors. Experts believe the items date back to around 1,000-800 BC.

The discoveries were first reported to the Portable Antiquities Scheme Cymru in January before museum archaeologists from the National Museum Wales were called in.

These hoards contain a real variety of tools and weapons used towards the end of the Bronze Age in this region. Many whole and still usable bronze objects were carefully buried in the ground at this particular time and archaeologists now think that these may have been gifts to the gods and ancestors, buried during ritual ceremonies. It is curious that this place in the landscape was chosen for the burial of two hoards of the same date and very close to each other.
