Ancient Celtic art uncovered in 'unique' gold hoardTwo amateur treasure hunters have uncovered a bracelet decorated with some of the earliest Celtic art ever found in Britain in a trove of gold jewellery revealed on Tuesday. Metal detectorists Mark Hambleton and Joe Kania made the discovery of the three torcs and a bracelet, which may have been made in France or Germany some 2,500 years ago. “This unique find is of international importance,” said Julia Farley, curator of British and European Iron Age collections at the British Museum, who assessed the find.
