Historic find in Gloucestershire field

A Cotswolds history buff has unearthed a piece of weaponry believed to be among the rarest ever discovered in Gloucestershire.

Steve Taylor, from Hatherley, stumbled across the treasure, part of an ancient sword handle, while metal detecting on a farm near Cirencester.

The bronze head, which would have been fitted to the end of a Celtic sword to keep the blade in place, is worth about £5,000.
