Default U.K: Unique metal artefacts from Iron Age settlement shed new light on prehistoric feasting

Unique metal artefacts from Iron Age settlement shed new light on prehistoric feasting


A unique collection of Iron Age metal artefacts which sheds new light on feasting rituals among prehistoric communities has been discovered by archaeologists from the University of Leicester during an excavation at Glenfield Park, Leicestershire.

The team, from the University of Leicester Archaeological Services (ULAS), has located a trove of ancient treasures at the site, including eleven complete, or near complete, Iron Age cauldrons, fine ring-headed dress pins, an involuted brooch and a cast copper alloy object known as a ‘horn-cap’, which may have been part of a ceremonial staff, emphasising the unusual nature of the metalwork assemblage.
