Forestry worker in Bohemia digs up Bronze Age treasure
A forestry worker in north Bohemia came upon a valuable prehistoric treasure: a massive bracelet and other objects dating back to the Bronze Age.
A forestry worker in the Štěstské region in north Bohemia this week discovered a valuable prehistoric treasure: a massive bracelet, two bronze axes and two so far-unidentified pieces of metal, which historians date back to the Bronze Age.
According to the director of the Podřipské Museum Martin Trefný, who was called to the site, the objects are about 3200 to 3400 years old – somewhere between the 14th and 11th century BC.
Trefný says they were of great value even in their time and their owner most likely hid them from enemies and was never able to retrieve them.
The objects are now being analyzed and will eventually be displayed in the Podřipské Museum.
