    Artefact shows Bronze Age Irish/Welsh Borders link

    An important Bronze Age gold bulla from Ireland has been found in Shropshire, England, on the Welsh Borders, illustrating a link between the regions in 1,000-750BC.
    "The ‘Shropshire Bulla’ is only the second to be found in England, and eighth in the British Isles, leaving Peter Reavill *– who represents the British Museum in Shropshire *– to declare it the greatest Bronze Age find of his career and of international importance."
