Archaeologists show off priceless gold haul

For the first time archaeologists are showing a 1.8-kilo haul of gold they found while performing excavations around a gas pipeline last year.

The bracelets, rings and other objects have been stored at Lower Saxony’s State Conservation Office since they were found in April 2011 near the town of Syke, while engineers prepared for construction of the so-called Nord Stream pipeline.

The haul includes 117 objects, the most recent of which appear to date from the Middle Bronze Age, around 1,000 years before Jesus’ birth.

Couple other good stories at that link as well.
