According to the CBC portal, this was the third time the teenager took part in the treasure hunt. Archaeologists later found more than 200 objects in nearby places. In mid-November, he, his father and grandfather were exploring the area with a local group of treasure hunters with a metal detector. Noticing a small drop in the ground, he began digging and discovered what appeared to be the head of an ancient axe. The girl’s father, a longtime archeology enthusiast, knew immediately that he had found something special. Lorna Dupre, chair of the Cambridgeshire County Green Environmental Investment Committee, confirmed that around 200 objects, which are believed to date from the Bronze Age from 3300 BC to 1200 BC, have been found near Royston. “It includes many unfinished artifacts such as double-bladed ax heads, blade fragments, all made of copper alloys,” the president said in an email. The objects were sent to the British Museum, where experts would analyze them in detail.
