Deer antlers found on a beach at Borth in Ceredigion last month have been confirmed as Bronze Age - meaning the animal lived around 3,000 years-ago.
The red deer antlers were spotted on the beach at Borth by visitors and reported the Royal Commission in Aberystwyth who in turn alerted Dr Martin Bates from the University of Wales Trinity Saint David who’s been doing research work in Borth for many years.
The deer is now known to have lived and died somewhere between 1200 and 1000 BC - the middle part of the Bronze Age.
“This is a far more exciting date than we were expecting,” said Dr Bates of the University of Wales Trinity Saint David.

Marine charity Sea Watch Foundation says sightings of bottlenose dolphins in Ceredigion will increase 'week on week', as they return to the shelter of the area to protect their young.
Cardigan Bay is famous for hosting one of Europe's largest semi-resident populations of bottlenose dolphins, one of the area's most important economic assets.
This winter also saw a more unusual visitor, in the shape of the short-beaked common dolphin. This type of species is usually seen in deeper waters such as in nearby Pembrokeshire.
Since it was first recorded, the charity has continued to receive reports from other local observers.
What will the common dolphin do when the bottlenose dolphins return, people ask me. The truth is we can't be sure! We would love to see this elegant and unusual New Quay resident spend its life in the bay, but there are high expectations that its larger cousins will not tolerate its presence. We'll have to wait and see.

A nine-year-old girl who was trapped between giant rocks while playing hide-and-seek on the beach at Aberaeron has been reunited with the RNLI lifeboat volunteers who rescued her.
Eira was trapped on Thursday evening, still wearing her school uniform, and stuck between rocks.
She was dramatically rescued, with the tide beginning to rise.
It was the first call-out for 17-year-old Tom Evans, a volunteer with New Quay inshore RNLI lifeboat, who crawled inside the rock and helped release her, by cutting her out of her wellington boots.
