(Sept. 12, 2016) Ancient Golden Sword Found Under Football Field

A suspected Bronze Age sword with a gold hilt that may be up to 4,000-years-old has been uncovered on the site of a new community football pitch. Diggers moved into the site in Carnoustie, Angus, in Scotland after a collection of relics were unearthed while workmen began laying foundations for the new sports field. Work to the playing fields has now been halted while archaeologists scour the site. Early excavations have revealed a trove of ancient artefacts, which the archaeologists believe could date back thousands of years. Earlier today experts from GUARD Archaeologists discovered what appears to be a sword with a gold hilt, or handle, dating back to the Bronze Age.

LiveLeak is not showing pictures so I put them into this video.
