Pete Cresswell and his brother-in-law Andrew Broughton recently uncovered a hoard of Ancient Roman treasure dating back to the fourth century. The find was discovered in the south-west county of Gloucestershire but its precise location remains under wraps.

The hoard contained an assortment of bronze artifacts ranging from vessel fittings to a large bronze statue, most of which had been broken down into small pieces. Archaeologists believe the breakage was deliberate and could have been the handiwork of a metal worker who planned to melt and recast the bronze later on.
