Bronze Age treasure found in Swedish forest

A unique Bronze Age find was made on 8 April in a wooded area just to the south of the town of Alingsås. It comprises around 50 artefacts that are all largely intact. These exclusive objects would have belonged to one or more high-status women in the Bronze Age.
