Location: Saving North Yorks finds for future generations by recording with PAS
Main Detector: Makro Racer
Archaeologists have made a significant Bronze Age discovery in the Torfaen area of south Wales, which will help people to understand communities living in Torfaen around 3,000 years ago.

A Bronze Age hoard was discovered by local metal detectorist, Gareth Wileman, in November 2014 while metal-detecting in the area of Trevethin, Torfaen. The hoard consists of five Bronze Age artefacts, including three socketed axes and two spearheads; this discovery was subsequently declared as treasure in 2016 by H.M. Coroner for Gwent.................

The Saving Treasures; Telling Stories Project is a partnership project between Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, The Federation of Museums and Art Galleries of Wales (The FED) and the Portable Antiquities Scheme in Wales (PAS Cymru) promoting the portable archaeological heritage of Wales through acquiring finds made by the public. The project secured Heritage Lottery Grant funding in October 2014 through the Collecting Cultures programme and runs for five years.

The Project will contribute to the work of museums and their collections by:-

Strengthening community and cultural identities and empowering people through learning, participation and inspiration. In addition, it will:

Acquire artefacts for national and local collections.
Bring together metal detector clubs, local museums and communities.
Enable diverse communities to engage with evidence for their past.
