Wiltshire Bronze Age artefacts put on show

Bronze Age items which were excavated in Wiltshire 200 years ago are to go on display in the county after spending recent years in a bank vault.

The Wiltshire Heritage Museum in Devizes, which had been at risk of closure, has been awarded a £370,000 lottery grant to create a new gallery.

The new Prehistoric Galleries will display Wiltshire's gold and amber finds dating back to before 2,000 BC.

Museum director David Dawson said he was "absolutely delighted".
