Gold from the time of Stonehenge


This gold sun disc is from Jug’s grave, Monkton Farleigh near Bath, dated to 2400 BC not long after the first sarsen stones were erected at Stonehenge.

I have added a new gallery to my homepage of images from the fantastic Wiltshire museum, Devizes. If you are ever down that way it is strongly recommended as a small museum with wonderfully presented archaeological finds of global significance.

Browse through the images here.
