It was in the Shropshire Marches back in Spring 2018 that an anonymous detectorist came across one of the most significant pieces of Bronze Age metalwork ever to be found in Britain. 

The sun pendant - also known as a bulla - would have been worn as a clothes accessory. It was purchased last year by the British Museum for £250,000 and is soon to go on permanent display there. The pendant’s temporary stay in Shrewsbury provides local people with the opportunity to view what is only the second bulla ever to be discovered in Britain.
