The Museum’s ‘Object of the Month’ provides an opportunity to explore interesting and unusual objects from our stores.
July’s Objects of the Month have been chosen by Carolyn Wingfield, Curator
This pair of solid gold bracelets, found in North-west Essex are nearly 3,000 years old. They date from the late Bronze Age, around 900 – 750 AD and seem to have been deliberately buried on their own. The Museum purchased them through the Treasure Act thanks to generous support from the Arts Council England / V&A Purchase Grant Fund, Art Fund, the Beecroft Bequest and two local donors.
Two members of Creative Walden’s Writers’ Room model the Bronze Age bling!
