Anglesey treasure hoard over 3,000 years old discovered

A late Bronze Age hoard of gold and copper thought to be around 3000 years old was unearthed on Anglesey .

The discovery is considered so important that it has been given the rare definition of ‘treasure’ by the coroner’s office.

They were found by a metal detecorist in Cwm Cadnant, and include a gold band – known as a hair ring – and an ear ring, which are believed to be examples of Bronze Age jewellery.

Detectorist Philip Cooper also found ingots, which would have been a form of early currency.
